LDM & AIX

Not sure if anybody is out there still running on the AIX RS/6000
platform...

I have a fairly expensive, dual cpu RS/6000 43P, which is about 2 years
old, and it is having a terrible
time running the LDM software.  I am  running AIX 4.3.

-The rpc.ldmd processes each are consuming around  5% to 10% of the
processors time.

-The load averages runs between 5 and 8. I compiled LDM on this machine.

The system does very little else, other than run the LDM. Below is the
snapshot of the
'top' report.

Is anyone else seeing this kind of poor performance on AIX with the LDM??

Thanks,

Mike Dross
