using timex to check whether performance degradation caused by OS or VxVM

February 1st, 2012

To check for differences between operating system times to access disks and Volume Manager times to access disks, we can know whether to check for differences between operating system times to access disks and Volume Manager times to access disks. This is because they should both be about the same since both commands force a read of disk header information. If one of those is markedly greater then it indicates a problem in that area.

#echo | timex /usr/sbin/format #to avoid prompt for user input. Use time instead of timex for linux
real          13.03

user           0.10

sys            1.49
#timex vxdisk –o alldgs list
real           2.65

user           0.00

sys            0.00

Good Luck!
