AIX 7.1 on Power 750 is very slow with no high memory or process consumption

Hi,

This thread has been posted before on linuxquestions.org, but no answer, maybe because this is unix question and not linux. I'm posting the same thread here, hope I can get an answer from someone in the meantime, I wish I could post of emergency thread but it needs bits which I don't have :

I'm posting this thread because first I'm a newbie on AIX (I've been a Linux Admin for almost 3 years and we have AIX for some project requirements) and second I could not find any useful info on that over the internet.
These servers are handed over to us by the client. We are experiencing slow performance on the console, on login (using Putty or any shell client on windows, the password pops up with a big latency) and on our Application Server (Oracle Weblogic 10.3.6). Here are the output of some of the usual commands :

Code:
-bash-4.2# svmon -G

And here is the topas sample output:

I even tried to check the bandwidth with a big file transfer and that looks fine.
Let me know if any other info is needed, actually we are stuck with this issue and we need to find a solution as soon as possible.

Hi and welcome to this forum,

to me it sounds like a DNS Timeout / Network misconfiguration problem - but i am not sure!

I would check the resolv.conf, /etc/hosts, etc. In this case a ssh -vvv can help to debug the problem.

I had a similar problem with the ssh daemon, in this case the ipv6 name resolutions caused big delays.


Regards

Hi,

this indeed sounds like a network configuration issue (dns). I saw this kind of behaviour before which was due to a dns misconfiguration.

Regards,

vincent

Well, actually we are using internal IPs instead of names, so that dns config seems a little bit strange to me.
Anyway, I've done ssh -vvv and here is the result :

Also, /etc/resolv.conf is as follows :
Code:
nameserver 192.168.110.200

(the nameserver above is for our Oracle RAC)

Can that be because of IPv6? actually I disabled IPv6 by
Code:
chdev -l lo0 -a netaddr6=''

command
# 5  
At which point the SSH login hung? The Debug show no timestamps.

For a test with SSH vs. IPv6 you could enable the line ListenAddress 0.0.0.0 in the /etc/ssh/sshd_config and
restart the SSH-Daemon stopsrc -s sshd && startsrc -s sshd.

It may be trying to do reverse lookups on the IPs.

How can I try that? Actually
Code:
127/8              127.0.0.1         U         1      9559 lo0      -      -

I have that in my routing table and

Code:
-bash-4.2# ifconfig -a
en4: flags=1e080863,c0<UP,BROADCAST,NOTRAILERS,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST,GROUPRT,64BIT,CHECKSUM_OFFLOAD(ACTIVE),LARGESEND,CHAIN>

Here is when it hung:

Code:
debug1: Error loading Kerberos, disabling Kerberos auth.
debug2: ssh_connect: needpriv 0

and went on after a minute or so:
Code:
debug1: Connecting to 192.168.110.45 [192.168.110.45] port 22.
