Very slow Oracle installation with file system settings
Veritas Volume Manager 3.0.4
System: Sun E250 with dual ~300MHz CPUs and 6 internal disks; 2 in rootdg, the other 4 in RAID 5 with no logging
Based on some recommendation of Metalink, I set the following options for mounting a vxfs file system:
However, I notice once I mounted with the options and start installing Oracle 18.104.22.168 to the file system, it takes very long time to install. After inserting CD #2 6 hours ago, it is still installing from the CD. Same thing happened to CD #1. The java process spawned from the installation program uses 80+% CPU constantly.
There is no failure in the RAID 5. Can someone suggest how to troubeshoot this?
1. Don't install from CD.
2. Are any of the disks 100% busy?
