Output of Dmesg
Description of problem:
When writing to disk, the IO Wait states increase rapidly
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Reproducible any time any extended writing is happening.
Steps to Reproduce:
When installing the Oracle Applications 12i (using the RapidWiz) the process takes 3 days. Other colleagues have explained this should only take 1-2 hours max.
Also, unzipping files, and general file copies take much longer than expected
3 day install
Disk config, entire disk is a volgroup, disk is a 6Gb/sec SATA. Hardware is brand new 64 bit HP with 4 CPU.
I'm new to Redhat Bugzilla, but a long time Linux user. Not sure what other attachments you need. I have attached my dmesg output for your perusal. PLease excuse me if I was unable to find an existing bug or if this bug is misclassified. If an existing bug exists, please let me know which one I should be following.
Thanks for all your help!
Any ideas on this one yet? Please let me know if you need any additional information.
Are there any command line or X windows disk benchmark utilities I can use?
I found out that the task I was doing which took three days should have completed in an hour or two.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
