Re: check HPUX log file to.

cat /etc/shutdownlog
cd to /var/adm/crash/crash & check the latest crash directory.

check /var/adm/syslog/OLSsyslog.log & syslog.log for errors

check /var/tombstones for any ts99 file with
valid time stamp.

For slowness lot`s of things to check see
swapinfo -tam for paging

Thanks

Re: check HPUX log file to.

/etc/shutdownlog.
Here it will give you timestamp and who was responsible for shutdown.

Please check OLDsyslog.log

Please see /var/adm/crash directory whether the crash dump is saved in that.

thanks and regards
