Login is very slow - possible auditing problem?
Posted on 2008-06-19
Logging into our AIX systems is sporadically very slow (ie - minute(s) instead of 2 seconds. After debugging our login scripts, I've come to think that this is a network issue or related to auditing in some way. I found this on IBMs site:
IZ22120: POOR NFS COPY PERFORMANCE ON 6.1 WITH AUDITING ENABLED
but we're also seeing this on our AIX 5.3 systems, as well as our 6.1 systems.
I'm looking for ideas on how to debug this issue. Note that I am not a sys admin and therefore don't have access to root. Sys admins are available but not dedicated to solving this problem.
