Performance of tape backups from ACFS was much slower after applying GI PSU. RMAN backup's seem to be running okay.

Comparing ACFS to a regular filesystem, it took twice the time on ACFS to dd a file to /dev/null.

You may also see heavy paging on the system. 

oks log will show lot of page steals and read faults.

Collect in-memory logs: "acfsutil log -f okslog.txt", compress okslog.txt
