Error description

  • The fuser command against a file takes a
    long time to return. This happens after
    an update to TL12 SP6 and is caused by the
    changes made to fix IV06838.
    

Local fix

  • Use the AIX 5.3 TL12 SP5 fuser/fuser64 binaries
    

Problem summary

  • fuser can be very slow if a process has a very large number
    of open files
    

Problem conclusion

  • Changed the procfs' readdir algorithm to a more efficient one.
    

Temporary fix
