Unless you determine what is the cause of your performance issue,
setting different options for filesystems would probably not get you
much. (Classic example: Souping up your engine won't help you go faster
if you have to encounter 20 stoplights on your way to work). Is this a
new installation or an upgrade? 9i or 10g? Are forms slow? or are
reports and concurrent jobs slow? Slow compared to what? You will first
have to set baselines and expectations before you change options...
Just my $0.02!

Subject: filesystemio_options oracle 9i hpux
I am handling a 700GB Apps 11.5.10 database running on HP-UX PARi(went
live last week). The performance is quite poor, I noticed that
filesystemio_options by default is asynch. AFAIK there are three
options, asynch, direct and setall, should this set to none if AIO and
directio arent used?
I guess it has to use asynch (even though AIO is not supported in HPUX
if raw device is not used) since direct i/o is not enabled. I deduced
this because in fstab thse options are not used
My experience in hpux is limited, worked with Solaris most of times.
Does anyone know if enabling these options in Veritas JFS will make lot
of difference? After enabling that do I have to set filesystemio_options
