sync hang

Post by Marco Negr » Fri, 24 Jan 2003 07:45:04

For what kind of reason a sync on a AIX 4.3.3 at the latest fixpack
can hang for 20 hours !!!
The machine is not overloaded, is an S80 with 12 CPU and, at least,
20~30% of idle time (no CPU e no I/O wait) ?
I suspect a bug with some scsi disk put in evidence by some
our software.
I have the same problem on 2 S80 and not in other two (with the same
kernel but different disk and applications).

Any idea ?
Sorry for my english.
