WebSphere on T1000
I hope this isn't too off topic or off the wall one.. but I have some questions and hopefully somebody has already solved this.
I have some Sun Enterprise T1000s I'm installing WebSphere Portal 6.0 on and the performance is horrid... The install itself took 3 times as long as it should and the installed portal itself is extremely slow. I've been searching for ways to optimize this and have yet to find anything. I would think that the multi core nature of the box would be a great place to run java intensive applications like this, but I'm starting to wonder now.
I've installed the cooltuner software, but it hasn't seemed to make much difference if any.
I guess my target question here is would there be some options that I can pass the bundled hotspot jvm (1.4.2_16) to get these processes running a bit faster...
As far as the box stats go, the cpu(s) mainly sit pretty idle, I'll catch a process at times hitting 4% but nothing intensive, I also have plenty of ram and the swap doesn't get touched.. iostats look ok too...
Thanks for any insight.
