Look on metalink for notes about async i/o and hp-ux. If you aren't using raw devices, you may be seeing the effects of Oracle trying to be cute and using async i/o when you don't have it.

If you are using raw devices, you may be seeing the effect of moving bottlenecks around, like squeezing a balloon animal. You can see odd paradoxical effects when you just throw memory at Oracle. Sometimes it's things like, you do more stuff in memory, therefore you generate more redo, therefore you create an I/O problem.
