unzipping or copying sleep stat in top while doing oracle install

HI,

We have RX3600 server with 1*dual core cpu, 8gb of Memory. We are installing oracle application in this machine, Now the issue is while doing unziping or copying its taking more time and in the top command shows unzip sleep stat, copying also sometimes shows run stat and sleep stat.

But almost 90% of the cpu is idle and 7gb of memory is free.
Pls advice in this regard.

This likely means you are waiting for I/O.
Are you reading from a DVD? See this thread:

If you read the other thread, reading from the DVD is very slow if not using the latest version for USB drives.

It has nothing to do with Memory or RAM. It has to do with the I/O bus and disk.

You're reading zipped files from your DVD and writing them to disk, and then unzipping these files and writing them to disk again.

You've been asked three times to present a 'sar -d 5 5 / sar -d 2 5' report. If you'd read the man page on sar's -d option this should be clear to you.

Also a zipped file is a compressed file, at minimun 1 to 2, maybe 1 to 20, I don't know. You should understand this also.

You've also been asked to contact Oracle. Have you even gone to their forums and asked?

Hi

Please provide your 'ioscan -funC disk' to find your dvd driver

Download the install media from oracle and installing from it is well worth your time and effort vs the DVD.

or copy the DVD to a local disk other than where you will install to, then install.

That way you can walk away and do something else during the slow copy, like read some documentation
