Solaris java long startup time

Hi

We are having extrem long startup times for our java part in our PI7.0 installation, we are waiting 30-45min until it's running

We have implemented all related notes and parameters,so we are suspecting Solaris to be the bad guy.

During startup we have seen that the CPU is running on 50% idle which is different from other installations where the CPU is running 100% until the Jlaunch have started all processes

Has any one had the same experiance/issue ?? or have some pointers where to look ??

-bash-3.00$ /usr/platform/`uname -i`/sbin/prtdiag

As you can see the system uses all available CPU resources (last three columns): 80 - 89 % user CPU and 20 - 11 % system CPU, the machine has no idle time. This is not a bad signal by definition (normal during startup) but since the used CPU is single-core single-threaded it needs to wait for the startup of each application/service before the next can be started and thus your startups are taking so long.

I´d either go for a machine with Ultra Sparc IV+ (multi-core/multi-thread) or use a "cheap" AMD Opteron or Intel Xeon 64bit server (compared to a SPARC machine), PI 7.1 is supported on that.
