[EP-tech] indexer stalls part 2

Hi all!

using this guide: http://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/116849/why-load-is-high-despite-the-fact-that-neither-cpu-or-disk-is-overused/116865#116865

I've found the problem:

top - 13:30:26 up 349 days, 17 min, 4 users, load average: 2.01, 1.83, 1.49
Tasks: 155 total,   2 running, 153 sleeping,   0 stopped,   0 zombie
Cpu(s): 3.0%us, 0.2%sy, 0.0%ni, 71.6%id, 25.3%wa, 0.0%hi, 0.0%si, 0.0%st
Mem:   8388608k total,  8120380k used,   268228k free,    54460k buffers
Swap:  2093048k total,        0k used,  2093048k free,  5445200k cached

PID USER PR NI VIRT RES SHR S %CPU %MEM TIME+ WCHAN COMMAND 6514 mysql 17 0 608m 150m 5788 D 0.0 1.8 0:05.73 sync_page mysqld

this mysql thread stay blocked in D state forever (I don't know what is doing really), thus the high I/O.

More info when I'll find more infos.

Hi Yuri,

  - Our experience is that the indexer rather is slowed down by too
many entries in the event table, especially if there are some which
are ancient (several weeks or months old). See Manage records > Tasks
. Removing old tasks will help a lot.

This really solved the problem, removing the queue of item to index lead
to a normal load. I would like to know why :-D
