We use ACFS filesystem to store Goldengate trail files on OGG source and target side.

"dd" read test result
ACFS read speed OGG volume disk volume disk speed
OGG source 71MB/s /dev/asm/ggatevol-40 7MB/s                      <<----------- 71 MB/s
OGG target 4.5MB/s /dev/asm/ggate-50 15MB/s                         <<-----------4.5 MB/s

Need to identify the root cause why "dd" read on OGG target side is slow.
$ time dd if=gg001649 of=/dev/null ibs=30000 obs=4096 count=17067 ( read 500MB trail file)
real 1m50.32s 500MB/(1m50seconds) = 4.5MB/second                   <<--------- 4.5 MB/s
