Our production informix database nightly archive run has become very slow. It used to take about 3-4 hrs. It now takes a whoppping 12 Hrs. Its affecting our production adversly, thus I ask for your help.
The change in time for backup was sudden. There was no hardware / software change prior to that for some months.
We are running 7.3 on HP-UX.
I have read about some articles about the very old page bug ? Is that it or can I check some other areas?
I think that the change of time may be increase size of the database.
I unknown, if use ontape or onbar. Onbar is generally more speedy that ontape.
Please test size of dbspaces temps, layout of disk and traffic on your network.
