    determining if vmstat output shows memory problem


      I have a database/web application that was moved from a V445 to a Sun T4-2 (64G memory), and now it is much slower.  I am trying to eliminate the server so the developers will look at the mysql database and stored procedures. 


      I am usually at 40G free memory out of 64G, CPUs are usually at 99% idle.


      I am not swapping, as those fields always show 0.


      I run sar -g and the pgout/s and ppgout/s can be 30 or 40 each but my pgscan/s is always 0.


      i run vmstat and page-in is always 0, page out changes somewhere between 300 and 600, with 'free' being about the same.    SR is always 0.



      # echo ::memstat | mdb -k

      Page Summary                Pages                MB  %Tot

      Total                    8323072             65024


      I'm not sure how to evaluate these figures and any research shows the same man pages and descriptions.


      Any help would be appreciated.
