Looks like you might be running the database on UltraSparc T1, T2 or T3 kind of processors. They are notoriously slow for databases.

Subject: catupgrd run time, 11gr2

I am preparing for our upgrade from to However, the catupgrd is running ~ 3.5 hours. It doesnt appear to stop on anything in particular, so I am dubious about getting it to go faster. However, I thought I would ask, does 3.5 hours seem like a reasonable run time? Its a sun sparc system, 64 bit with 32 cpus and 128G RAM. Does anyone have any good methods for tuning the process?
