Which OS are you on? If it happens to be Solaris, then prstat -mLp *PID*would show the scheduling latency for LGWR. This would help to find out
whether LGWR is CPU starved or not.... what load averages do you have? Also, what does snapper say when ran on LGWR? If you have synchronous DG for example, then LGWR would wait for the LNS ack too in addition to the log file parallel write wait, before returning OK back to the committing session ...
