6.1 TO 7.1 Upgrade Performance Issue

Am working with a client that is upgrading from 6.1 to 7.1 and is having a performance issue. New platform is Sun T5220 running 1 CPU with 8 threads. Old environment (not sure of hw model) had 4 cpu’s with 1 thread each.

Has anyone had issues with doing this kind of upgrade or moving from multiple CPU’s to one with multiple threads.

Thanks in advance for any help/suggestions you can offer.

Mate you are giving the cause of the problem in your description itself. Its is but obvious if you are downgrading a 4XCPU to a 1XCPU you will have issues. And please understand a 1XCPU will work in a round robin fashion where the individual threads would be competing with each other for CPU Time.

WM7 works better or rather best in a multi CPU environment.
