Average c0t0d0 24.51 6.78 44 952 17.45 14.42

See pls find the avg of the sar -d out put of one day..

My server is havig some performance issue and looking into it.

It seems the avserv is almost 14 and the avque is almost 8 .

This is for the VG00 disks. Not the applcication VG disks.

Do you see any bottle neck on the local disks...

Re: disk que

Hi,
For performance issue you need to check so many things some of are

Check what are the application is running?
how much physical memory your server have?
which process is taking more memory?
how much swap memory you have?

Re: disk que

If I remember correctly pac-cli is a gathering tool used by HP.

it is used to anilze your system in our case I think it was gathering info on our SAN performance.

Re: disk que
