system kind of hung

This is new to me. I have an 11.31 i2 blade server that is somewhat hung up. I cannot use vi. I cannot use glance, nor ioscan. they just hang. I ran truss with glance and it just goes to sleep. Top, sar, and other things work fine. Memory looks all right, and cpu use looks low. Any ideas?
"The difference between me and you? I will read the man page." and "Respect the hat." and "You could just do a search on ITRC, you don't need to start a thread on a topic that's been answered 100 times already." Oh, and "What. no points???"

Hi Court:

Are any filesystems (particularly '/tmp' and/or '/var') out of space?

Regards!

Hi Court,

TOC the system. And hope crashdump has been setup decently. ;)

Re: system kind of hung

Issue was with /dev/config. Looks like an rsm job had a lock on /dev/config. I tried killing the job, but no doing. The process did not want to die. Anyway, anything that tried to read that file went to sleep. I had to reboot the server. All is good now. I do find it strange that vi would need to read /dev/config. Go figure.
