I've been seeing this on my machines, too. I run a Squid as an
accelerator. My old setup had an AMD K6-2/500 with 256MB and a single
9GB fast wide SCSI disk. It was able to handle 250 reqs/sec and the
CPU was about 50% busy. Then I upgraded the system to an Athlon. I
kept all the other parts the same, just changing the motherboard and
CPU. Now with the Athlon, I get almost 100% CPU busy at about 100
reqs/sec. This seems odd. Nothing else has changed. Any ideas?
I'm running FreeBSD with soft updates enabled.
