Cache mem hit is always 100%

Hi  we have hpux 11iv3 servers where Cache Memory hit is always 100% .

We are experiencing tremendous performance issues.

 

Filecache_max = 5%

filecache_min= 3%

 

Oracle 11g

 

Checked it from Perfware tool .

This cache hits are usually a good thing.  Unless you want to blame applications for always reading/writing the same thing.

How much memory do you have?  What kind of applications are you running?  What does "swapinfo -tam" show?

Hi Dennis,

We are getting performance issue since we have migrated from 9i to 11g also from 11iv2 to 11iv3 .

Oracle guy saying he has chekd all parameters , sga , auto mm is disabled .

We are having EMC VNX5500 with fast cache 200 GB SSD  + 24GB internal cache .

 

We have 2 app servers with 16cores / 256GB RAM .

2 DB Servers with with 16cores / 256GB RAM .

 

What we have observed is when all batch jobs start at same time , the system just chokes .

Jobs that used to take 40 min to complete , now are taking 120 min .

Everything has gone for toss in this new setup .

EMC analysis showing SP's are unbalanaced , apart from that nothing .

We have installed powerpath in those servers.

This says you have way too much device swap.  And plenty of memory.

What is your size of shared memory for your SGA?

Do you have glance installed?

Hi Dennis ,

 

We have glance installed.

We have 20 databases on on server.

All SGA mounting to approx 60 GB .

 

 Can we check something from OS end , some sar statistics .

Re: Cache mem hit is always 100%

Hi Dennis ,

 

when we changed max_queue_depth to 128 , we got desired performance.

We changed it for only 1 lun as of now.

Hi is it safe to change this kernel parameter online ? Can we change it ?

 

Why this issue was not faced in 11iv2 ?

 

 PFA sar -H 5 5 which shows the write MB/s is very very low , though its of during off hrs , i will collect same when system is busy and share here .
