Always use the latest firmware
By Darryl Gove-Oracle on Mar 20, 2009
Steve Sistare has an excellent write up of a scaling issue that we hit last year. The issue was frustrating because all the tools seemed to indicate a healthy system, but we were just not getting the scaling that we expected. The solution, as Steve writes, was a firmware update. Which was great - the problem was solved - but frustrating because we could have just started by updating the firmware.... but it's not something you always think of!
