we have a Portal Server SP3 distributed among 3, webserver + portal server + gateway.
The thing is that everything works fine (fast and responsive) but on the GW the load is always very high, always above 7 ( reported by the uptime command). The problem is that if we issue a prstat, vmstat, mpstat, sar, any tool, you don't see any remarkable activity, with the CPU almost always idle, which is what I would expect given the performance of the machine, but not what I would expect out of the uptime command.
Did anyone of you have anything similar?
We tried on solaris 8 and Solaris 9 and we have exactly the same on both. Are we missing something?
Thanks in advance
