load average: 10.09, 5.76, 4.43


The cpu utilization is only 2-5% only but when looking at the load avarage from top output.
it show 10 and some time it goes to 14 and that i server response is very slow .. we need to wait for ls -ltr command to execute.

Please let me know if any more info required

Vimlendu

But you have 16 CPÜ.

This is not an Oracle problem, ask your sysadmin.

Thats correct it is not oracle issue ...

but i have to solved the issue whether is realted to oracle or sysadmin(Linux) ... so please guide me in that case ..

we have 16GB of RAM .. and almost 15GB is used most of the time ..

can memory cause the load issue .. ? if yes then how to realse the memory apart from adding more RAM... ?

Vimlendu

Vimlendu, we already know that your discs are performing terribly. Leonid suspected this in your previous thread, and I told you how to calibrate them. Have you done that yet? No, I didn't think so.
As for RAM, you have more than enough. Run this,
cat /proc/meminfo
and interpret the output. Or ask your sysadmin to do it for you.

This question bears no real connection with Oracle.
Please find a more appropriate forum.
The topic is locked.
If I'm wrong, please, PM me (or report this message to a moderator, explain why you think it should be unlocked and it might be done).

Well, the 99.0%wait on CPU 15 are definitely pointing do a I/O bottleneck. All the CPUs are idle because they wait for their I/O to finish.

Either because the disks are indeed broken, or there are queries that indeed saturate the disk controllers or the disks themselves.
