Solaris Applications Specific Tuning Wiki

As part of the Second Edition of the famous Solaris Internals and the new Solaris Performance and Tools book a performance tuning Wiki has been created. This site is meant to be a living document where best practices, tuning information, and tips are collected.

I have began contributing Oracle performance information to the Solaris applications specific tuning Wiki. I hope you enjoy this repository of information regarding performance on Sun systems.

You need to add more hints to the Oracle on T2000 section, ideally using a Netapp with NFS to store the Oracle datafiles :-) and don't forget to increase the listener queuesize if it seems you can't get enough traffic to the db!

There should be a section on Oracle/T2000 as well as more indepth coverage of NAS. For now, check out the slightly dated but good paper on Netapps performance.

Increasing the listener queuesize will help the application service more concurrent connections to the database. This is not necessarily specific to NAS or T2000, but might be necessary due to the extra network traffic. This will not effect steady state performance as the listener is not involved after the connect to the database. If you find a larger queuesize is helpful, you may look into architectural reasons to help limit the number of concurrent requests by using more persistent connections.

Hope this helps,
-Glenn

This blog discusses performance topics as running on Sun servers. The main focus is in database performance and architecture but other topics can and will creep in.
