Subject:   FreeBSD on Mini-ITX has web page latency
Message-ID:  <>

Next in thread | Raw E-Mail | Index | Archive | Help

Usability studies say that a person won't wait more than 4 seconds for a
web page download.  FreeBSD using Konqueor or Lynx takes more than 10
seconds.  This is puzzling since ftp transfers at 400kbs, pings of take 80ms, and top shows CPU is 93% idle.

This is for a EPIA-CN130000 mini-itx with .5gb memory.

Via says it works with Windows and Linux. It worked well for me using Mepis

Note the message log sees a VT6102 LAN but the board has a 6103. Perhaps
that explains the problem. Otherwise, it must be a protocol issue.

Any suggestions would be welcome
