    Has anyone else saw a performance DECREASE when moving to CL5.7 on AIX6.1L?

    We have a new Power6 server with two 5ghz CPUs and 24g memory on the LPAR with 8gig HBAs.

      Hi Guys.

      Just bumping this thread again as we had an issue last week where this setting was changed (its been the same for about 5 years!) and caused HUGE issue with performance!

      We have 70+ production sites which normally take 11 minutes to start when started with locally wrapped start scripts.

      We are running CIS5.7R2 on AIX 6.1 TL 6 SP5 on Power 6’s with our sites deployed over multiple filesystems that are configured in a SAN pool

      using JFKS2 journeling.   When we upgraded from 5.6R3 to 5.7R2 we tripled our old ulimit settings for user accounts hci and hcitest.

      Here are our current values:

      alin1hub:/quovadx/qdx5.7/integrator/allina_prod5/Xlate >ulimit -a

      time(seconds)        unlimited

      file(blocks)         2097151

      data(kbytes)         18874368

      stack(kbytes)        2097152

      memory(kbytes)       2097152

      coredump(blocks)     2097151

      nofiles(descriptors) 10000

      threads(per process) unlimited

      processes(per user)  unlimited

      The Power 6s are the 550 models; 4-way with 4.2 G CPUs and 16 G memory configured per our operating system group.

      We are planning to move to AIX virtualized hardware soon running in AIX 7 SP1 – our operating system group desires to up our OS level.

      And run on Power 7s’.

      To date we have had no performance issues or I/O contentions; however, in the old days we had ALL our sites on ONE filesystem and yes ! we experienced I/O hits and slowness.

      I hope this helps you out.
