  1. VxVM 3.0.3 & Solaris 2.7 on E6500


    We are running VxVM 3.0.3 (using RAID 0) on 4 A5200 Storage
    arrays. Creating a file with 150MB size under a VxVM volume(using mkfile
    command) takes 110 seconds. whereas a non VxVM
    volume (like /, /opt, /usr) ita takes only 30 seconds.

    Any ideas, help, pointers would be really appreciated.

    thanks,
    Murali

    I assume you are using VxFS. mkfile command is mainly used for UFS file systems.
    Instead use setext command of VxFS.
    If u have access to sunsolve, check SRDB 19338. This is well
    documented there.
