Are you using veritas by chance? We ran into a bug with veritas that messed up the I/O statistics running on solaris 10. Just put the patch in Monday am.

Subject: RE: Oracle issue with Ultrasparc CPU's


We have just gone from a Sun 6900 to a Sun 1280, from 8 CPU's to 4 CPU's with 1.5 (versus 1) Ghz processing power .  They are called Ultrasparcs.  We are running both Oracle 8.1.7 and Oracle 10.  Performance has degraded and it looks to me that the bottlenecks are I/O.  However, I am hearing a rumour that Oracle 8.1.7 does not take advantage of the Ultrasparcs.  
 
Has anyone dealt with this issue and where is it documented?
 
Thanks,
Paula
