cat /proc/sys/kernel/random/entropy_avail


If the output of the above command is below ten, insufficient entropy could be the reason why your server is slow to start. A possible solution is to install Haveged to increase the amount of entropy available.


To install Haveged on RHEL/Fedora/CentOS machines:


yum install haveged
chkconfig haveged on


To install Haveged on CentOS 8:

yum install wget -y
yum install epel-release-latest-8.noarch.rpm -y
yum install haveged -y
