Rp8400 io performace is very low.

I am facing io performance issue on rp8400 server.
Its simple configuration no napr or vpar.
2 cell baord/8PCU/12GB /Internal 4 disk/os 11.31

test is file of 300 mb & if I run copy it take 35 second to copy the file

/home>time cp test test1

other server e.g rx2660 takes only 6 seconds.

Let me know if any tunning required for this.

Re: Rp8400 io performace is very low.

The internal disks of a rp8400 are Ultra-2, the internal disks of a rx2660 are SAS - this is at least 4 times faster.

Anyway, your disks are too slow - what do you get from

# scsictl -c get_target_parm /dev/rdsk/c2t0d0

(use the appropriate device file for your disk)!

Hope this helps!
