This is a rather poor excuse to delete this question.

If the suggestions provided helped you to improve the performance of your system, award the points.
I.e. pointed you to where you should look within your setup to adjust your settings etc.
Your login, would then be confidential and will result in you requesting that every future question you pose to be deleted because of confidential info.

hey if you have confidentiality concerns because of a top and fdisk -l, or to express things like "the client is a transactional system" or "this is a banking app with thousands of small transactions" all of that is generic for us, but contribute to solve the bottleneck problem.

why not making yourself a favor and post the information "generalized" so we can help you deal with the situation?

if still there are security concerns, as said, you can award the points to the expert that gave you the best insingh into your's problem solution or al least, gided you to the root cause.

-best,
Gabriel
