Howto save cpu load

Hi there,

my name is Niko. I have set up an Rock Pi 4b Penta SATA Hat with Debian Buster and Open Media Vault. All is looking fine so far. Unfortunately, I don’t know anything about Linux. What are the possibilities to further reduce the CPU load of the Rock Pi? I only access via SSH client.
How for example can I check if there is running a graphical window manager and deactivate it?


top & htop are my usual goto’s for seeing what is causing load, htop usually (just prefer the layout and its only the worst offenders I am interested in)

ps -aux | more or sudo ps -aux | less for the full list

Good link here
