RE: Oracle ERP application tier on T3 server

I have not had any major issues with T2 or T3 servers, except if you are doing something that requires a lot of floating point operations, such as gzip, compression or massive encryption. I am not positive on the T3 but the T2 sacrifices floating point chip real-estate for other capabilities. Running a database on a T1 or T2 server, then doing RMAN backups with compression is an example where it got really slow-turning the compression off resulted in dramatic speed gains. Based on your description, I would tend to look elsewhere for the cause unless you can find some processing making heavy use of floating point operations.

Subject: Oracle ERP application tier on T3 server

Does anyone have their ERP middle-tier (Forms and Apache) running on a Sun T3 server? We have recently migrated our ERP middle-tier environments from v490 to T3 servers and I have noticed that after 40-50 forms sessions are opened in an environment, the response time within a form screens becomes really slow. For example, when F11 is pressed to initiate query within a forms, it takes several seconds after the form goes into the query mode. I am trying to find out if this is due to the threaded architecture of these T3 servers or there is something else going on.  

Any feedback will be appreciated.
