In single user mode, try to narrow it down by doing this: cd /etc/rc2.d for i in * do echo "memory status" sar -r 5 5 echo "starting $i" sh ./$i done You also said you restored your root: I wonder just what you did here, because not having swap could also cause that (that will show up in the sar reports anyway). Did you recreate the partitions and forget swap maybe? Also look at https://aplawrence.com/cgi-bin/ta.pl?arg=104239 -- Tony Lawrence SCO/Linux Support Tips, How-To's, Tests and more:
