BE patch


hi,
I think that the upgrade process is I/O intensive and maybe cpu intensive.right?
So if i like to perform upgrade or to patch an BE on solaris 10,this should be done when the OS is low loaded.right?
tnx

Please read the LQ Rules about text-speak and about not using it.

Solaris 10 is a bit old, but yes, patching when the system isn't being used is typically the best idea.

Patching is not that much CPU intensive but can be I/O intensive, so yes, if your system is I/O bound on the system disks during the peak hours, defer patching to quiet ones.

In any case, live upgrade is definitely the recommended way to do it with Solaris 10, if only because the fast rollback feature.
