This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hi all,

IHAC who has upgraded their SF HA 6.1 on RHEL 5 and noticed their RUNQ increased four times (0.1 avg to 0.4 avg). AFAIK, nothing has been changed during the upgrade.

I'm wondering if it's an isolated case or expected behavior?

I wouldn't expect this behavior with an upgrade & I don't see any such issue reported in the "known issues" section of SF6.1 release notes.

I would assume this to be an isolated case, if you are pretty sure that nothing else has changed (application load, any storage related change, any SAN/NAS switch related change), then I would recommend to open up a case with Symantec & seek inputs.

If you are using the SmartIO feature in 6.1, you should also consider this patch:
