8 Replies and 3798 Views Lawson Performance Poor after upgrade  3798  8 Started by  slavo Does anyone have any suggestions on improving perfromace on Lawson system  We upgraded a few months ago and performance is really poor.  We are using S3, version on Aix 6.1 with Oracle 11g, IIS and AD LDS.  Jobs like PR260 or AM275 are running twice as slow now.  I checked and tuned WebSphere.  Oracle DBA cannot find any issues on DB server either.  Any thoughts and suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
