Thanks for the anwser. www pages About INN and ovdb weren't updated for
more than 1 year so I i wasn't sure:
- nobody cares about ovdb
- ovdb is v. stable - no updates needed ;-)))

Temporarily solved the problem with bottleneck.
When throw out vxfs 3.5 I got over 1000% performance kick on max incoming
art rate (multiple innxmit from outher reader server). Tried tuneup
veritas for few days with no results.
UFS works without logging, vxfs was running evenm with "tmplog" flag.

I'm not sure wether problem is in sol9 or vxfs 3.5, but vxfs3.4p9
didn't work good too :(
I will follow this case with techs from sun. Mayby it requires some
specific options...
