Hi All,

My OSX SL server is showing catastrofic response times.

So I looked at the CPU usage and netwrok traffic graphs which showed little ressource load.

Then I looked at the system log and found the below extract which repeats, repeats, repeats.

Problem is I have no idea what this is all about.

any advice would be welcome

Are you using jabber (Chat) on the server?
To turn it out in terminal type

sudo serveradmin stop jabber

If you need it type

sudo serveradmin fullstatus jabber

and post the results

Hi

I don't know what JABBER does. The iChat service is marked as off on the Server Preferences. There is no requirement for CHAT services.

Anyway I did stop it to see the effect.

The log file continues to document

I actually noticed in Server Preferences/iChat that the "Enable server-to-server communications" was on. So I switched that off and did a start/stop of iChat.

This seems to have stopped the JABBERD/SM results in the system log files.

However, the below remain and are also repetitive.

As there is no need for flash, can this be stopped as well ?

Hi

Good idea to check the case of the file. But this is not the issue.

Actually, flash has no reason to be installed on this server.

So the question is, why is the updater trying to run and how do I stop that ?

I took this a step further and downloaded and executed the adobe flash un-installer.

No change in the system log files.

So I'm thinking that the server thinks it should run the flash updater, but cannot find it.

So how does one tell osx to stop trying to run the flash updater ?

I finally stopped the flashupdater. The info was here (https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3945523?start=0&tstart=0).


Now I have a "notification server connect failed..."

Look for a file named com.apple.flashupdater.plist in the following locations :


~/Library/LaunchAgents Per-user agents provided by the user.
/Library/LaunchAgents Per-user agents provided by the adminis-
trator.
/Library/LaunchDaemons System wide daemons provided by the admin-
istrator.
/System/Library/LaunchAgents Mac OS X Per-user agents.
/System/Library/LaunchDaemons Mac OS X System wide daemons.

Delete the file if you don't need it.

See if it's loaded. In Terminal :

launchctl list | grep flashupdater

Remove the job from launchd by label and check your log messages :

launchctl remove job_label

Info : Man page launchctl (http://developer.apple.com/library/mac/#documentation/Darwin/Reference/ManPages/man1/launchctl.1.html)

Edit : Nevermind I didn't see your last post while I was writing mine.

But I still looked at some parts of your instructions. The Launchctl still lists flashupdater ! So I stopped it as per your instructions.

However, I checked in the system log and there were no messages relating to Flash.

However, I personally do not recall installing Flash. And my SL server is screenless so I don't see how I could have accidently installed it. Is this a standard SL setup from Apple ?

How can I be sure that flash does not "somehow" try to restart on the next server restart ?

But thanks for your input, it was a helpful.

Sorry but I have no experience administering or running SL server but Flash updates were done by Apple with Software Update if memory serves me well. I think things changed with Lion an ML. To be sure flash does not "somehow" try to restart on the next server restart, is to stop or unload the job and deleting all the files associated with it. From the link eg :

/System/Library/CoreServices/FlashUpdaterAgent.app
/System/Library/LaunchAgents/com.apple.flashupdater.agent.plist
/System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.flashupdater.plist
/usr/libexec/FlashUpdater
/usr/libexec/PerUserLaunchEnv

After you've done that and you can restart the server there should be no more messages in the logs.

Indeed that worked.

But its still very slow. Trying to find out why.

Any ideas?
