tar/gunzip//rpm command hung on DL 380 G6 and DL 360 G6 server with SLES10SP2 OS

I have installed sles10sp2 and ran 20 tar commands parallel in background. After 30 second server hung and not allowed execute any other commands. This happened on both DL360G6 and DL380G6 server.
initrd contains "piix mptspi ide-generic processor thermal fan reiserfs edd cciss qla2xxx jbd ext3"

Is this problem with disk drivers? or firmware probelm?

Similar problem, gzip command hung on BL460G6 server. after firmware update problem resolved.

Hi Vikranth!
How you resolve this problem?
I have HP DL360 G6 server and SLES10 sp2 operation system.
I start copy big file (4gb) from one directory to another directory, server hung and not allowed command after 15-30 second.

This sounds more like a Linux or user problem. If you are going to give the OS massive amounts of work, then everything will be busy for awhile.

Additional info:
If you are using Latest Firmware on DL 380 G6 Hardware.
Problem has occured runing Suse 10 SP2
on Proliant DL 380 G6. Problem is new Smart array version doesnt support by SUSE 10 SP2 OS. OS hangs on the server when disk array try huge allocation on disk. Ethernet up but SSH OR Telnet didnt work.
You must downgrade or upgrade cciss(Smart Array Version) from xx.xx to 2.72
You can check the Smart Array version in this path:
more /proc/driver/cciss/cciss0
if you want to do test on system
dd comand is useful.
Latest Sa version hanged. But SA 2.72 seems to be worked
Attention:! Command is dangerous.Your server to be hangs. if your smart array version is different 2.72 version and runing SUSE 10 SP2 on DL 380 G6 servers
Example:
time dd if=/dev/zero of=/tmp/deneme.sil bs=4096k count=1024 (Command need to be space (4 gb)in tmp mount )
Do not forget remove /tmp/deneme.sil file.
