Slow dtfile after latest patchbundle-upgrade - hp-ux 11i.v1

After the latest patch-upgrade on our rp3440-server running hp-ux 11i.v1, the dtfile (cde filemanager) is very slow again.

This is a problem we had some years ago but managed to fix with a patch.

Enclosed is swinstall.log

Shalom,

Check the patch you used last time, its probably been superseded. Or search http://itrc.hp.com for new CDE patches.

Seems like its on NFS-mounts this problem comes.

The first 2-3 levels from root is ok but after that it goes slower and slower.. Opening direcories under the 3rd level is cyrup.. 3-4 minutes to open a directory containing 57 files..

I will try to roll back the latest patchupgrade to see if that helps.

HP-UX 11.v1, patched up to the latest version of everything according to the patch assestment.

Unfortunately the patch-upgrade done was so big that it would not be possible to roll it all back 'just' for the dtfile.

One example I have is when checking the /data/srmuxroot/DATA/Oseberg/NaviScan directory, containing 123 files and 3.1GB of data.

This takes 3-4 minutes to browse and to count up the number of files while checking the directory /data/Scsmenu2005/Files takes 4 seconds containging 129 files (only 2MB).

The size of the files should not really affect the output/time?..
