Poor Performance 10gR2 HPUX 11.31

Hi all,

Recently install ORacle 10gR2 10.2.0.4 on HPUX 11.31 Itanium, and have problems with connections, i change every oracle parameters sga, redo, etc, and the db have bad performance, the db hangs when more users connect, change dedicated connection to shared and viceversa, etc.. so i change the kernel parameters in the oracle installation guide, but i search for pacthes for this version of HPUX 11.31 or any who has the same problem??

Thanks a lot.

If you're on the Sept 08 release of 11.31 you should already have the tuneserver command.

If you do just run:

tuneserver -o

to set kernel parms suitable for oracle

If you don't have it - go here to get it:

As far as patches are concerned, just make sure you're on the latest quality pack:

Re: Poor Performance 10gR2 HPUX 11.31

if you have Oracle performance problems, better is start with AWR and RDA reports to see what exactly happened in the database, don't change OS parameters when you do not know exactly which one can help you ... and keep in the mind the golden rule .. do not change more things at once ;-)

Hello,

a) I use Tune-N-Tools in the labs.
However, I do it for testing and
when teaching customers.

These are the kernel parameters that

There is version 2 of the Tune-N-Tools
but I did not have time to check it yet.

b) Patrick gave you a very good
and simple advice: change small
number of parameters at a time.

c) One of the HP courses is H4262S
(HP-UX Performance and Tuning).
In it, there is a nice statement worth
remembering:

QUOTE:
You only have a performance problem
if you have a performance problem!
It does not matter what the measurements
are saying.

If you have a performance problem,
you have a performance problem.
It does not matter what the measurements
are saying.
END QUOTE

In other words, do you have any issues
with the performance, or are you happy
with the server?

Do not create problems if they do not
exist :)

By the way,

What is the storage you use for the DB?

Hi,

Monitor RAM and swap space on your system. Perhaps you have not enough RAM on your system. We had the issue like you describe and it was resolved by adding more RAM to our server.

I have had some problems after an Oracle database clone if I forgot to check my init.ora parameters.

I also set some connection and DB processing parameters high for our Ora 11i ERP database (v9.2.0.6) which still should be in Oracle 10g DB.

open_cursors = 4000
session_cached_cursors = 500
processes = 950
