Symptoms

WLS BSU (Smart Update) may take a very long time to apply patches. This is especially true with larger patches such as the Patch Set Update (PSU) and is most noticeable when going through the process to check for conflicts. You may have increased memory for the BSU in the past, but is still not completing in an acceptable time. Using the normal command to apply a patch:

./bsu.sh -install -patchlist=XXXX -patch_download_dir=/home/weblogic/wls/1036/utils/bsu/cache_dir -prod_dir=/home/weblogic/wls/1036/wlserver_10.3
