month-end closing performance issue

Dear Experts,

     We have met the serious performance issue during month-end closing. It takes more than 48 hours to run CON2 and 30 hour to run CO88. However, there is no any performance issue at the daily system operation. Our basis engineer collects the system information as below:

     SAP component version: EHP4 FOR SAP ERP 6.0 / NW7.01

      Operation system: AIX

      Database: DB6

      DB version: 09.01.0009

     We have only one server for our production system. This server plays both roles as database server and application server.

     During month-end closing, the status of system as following:

     CPU     User%     Kern%     Wait%     Idle%

     ALL        9.7          0.7          10.9         78.6

     Our basis engineer also collect top 5 tables as following. The total size of database is 686,260,352.

     Table name          Size

     COSS         123,019,562

     RESB             6,593,504
