        Just wondering how much memory is on these servers and if you're
doing much parallel processing?

        Also, if you think you have too many CPUs and have more than just
the database on a server, you may look at the man pages for psrset.  Should
be in /usr/sbin.  This lets you restrict what CPUs an app can have.  I think
you could also make a case for reducing your license costs.  

Same command on Solaris - TRU64 is pset


"The databases are very large, 500 and 800 gb's or so.  The equipment is not
bad: 8 cpu
HP-UX boxes with emc storage.  The db's are and will soon be
patched to  (test db has already been patched and several key
queries perform better with the patch)"
