Oracle DB runs slower when system is booted up after a panic.

(Doc ID 2203060.1)

Last updated on MARCH 16, 2018

Applies to:

Solaris Operating System - Version 11.2 to 11.3 [Release 11.0]
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit)
The issue is just affecting systems that have the feature "Deferred Dumps" available and activated.
Deferred dumps are only available for:

- SPARC : Only available on T5 and later machines (eg T5, Mx-32)
- need Sys Firmware 9.4.x
- older systems revert to traditional dump

Solaris 12 build 61 and above
Solaris 11.3 build 14 and above
Solaris 11.2 SRU 8.4.0 and above


 The DB apps run slower after a panic.

Any command that runs vmu_calculate_seg (like prstat) runs slower.
