CSTM output

Hi,

I am getting this error in CSTM. Can any one help me about it. Actully the main problem is 100% disk utlization and performance is dead slow.

# sar -d 5 5

Re: CSTM output

The error information points to the malfunctioning hardware, maybe a LBA or the PCI card in rope 7. The ROPE 7 would point to a PCI slot.

You haven't mentioned the server model. Run logtool as given below and take a look at its output. If you want you can post it here.

#Print the formatted logtool to /tmp directory

Re: CSTM output

Hi AFA:

Regarding disk c2t0d0 in your 'sar -d' report and the extremely high avserv numbers along with virtually no avwait numbers, High numbers of block reads and writes per second ( r+w/s ). For example the first line:

95.41 = %busy

0.50 = avque ( not high, not blocking )

1 = r+w/operations / second ( one operation )

319 = r+w/blocks / second ( high, one operation is writing 319 blocks )

6.74 = avwait ( small compared to avserv, no disk bottlenec )

2111.54 = avserv ( high, slow responding disk )

One disk operation on a slow disk is writing 319 blocks. The device is 95% consumed by this operation.

Can you "pvdisplay -v /dev/dsk/c2t0d0 | more" and note the file systems on this disk? Can you also provide a "diskinfo -v /dev/rdsk/c2t0d0"? And finally, the logtool report.

/usr/sbin/cstm<<-EOF
runutil logtool
rs
EOF

The IOC error is odd. IOC is your Input Output Controller. Is this a linux PA-Risc box?

%busy: This is the percentage of time the device is being read from or written to.

avque: This is the average depth of the queue that is used to serialize disk activity. The higher the avque value, the more blocking is occurring.

r+w/s, blks/s: This is disk activity per second in terms of read or write operations and disk blocks, respectively.

avwait: This is the average time (in milliseconds) that a disk read or write operation waits before it is performed.

avserv: This is the average time (in milliseconds) that a disk read or write operation takes to execute.

Re: CSTM output

AFA,
Just a comment, you've got the same message posted in two places, it's normally enough to post one (duplicates will usually be removed).

How is your investigation going? Several questions have been asked in both threads, can you give any of the requested data that might help the posters here suggest answers or further lines of enquiry?

The evidence in the output above is that this is an HP-UX box (running CSTM, for a start, and "HP-UX hpux B.11.23" in the sar output). Is it a PA or IA box?
