diagmond performance hit every 290 secs

nothing is set at this interval, but a major perf hit every 290 secs. default ioscan is turned to off. 1 what is responsible for this & 2 what are the ramifications if I turn diagnostics off? PS this will affect about 3000 systems worldwide.....

Maybe you are running a bad and already replaced version?

Hope this helps!

Re: diagmond performance hit every 290 secs

Hi

Since 10.20 I've been answering DBA's questions about diagmond consuming, typically 5% of overall CPU consumption. On a big box with a big database 5% is a big hit.

You can turn off diags through /sbin/init.d/diagnostics off, and this will regain you resources. But I would not do it. Instead I would look to update my firmware and diagnostics bundles and review the problem.

For its possible if your diags are out of date that your firmware is trying to send a message and no one is listening: Diagnistics software does the listening. Firmware does the sending.

So if your firmware is out of date, you may have a problem and firmware can't notify anyone because it doesn't know how to.

STM version should be A.65.00 (B.11.11.21.06 in swlist), EMS A.04.20.11

Can you confirm?

Hope this helps!
