How many CPU/EC? Internal disk or SAN?
Some AIX updates are... very intensive in the IO department to say the
least and from what you say it might have been touching a lot of files.

I've run into the following:

VIOS is the latest available. It has two issues I've come across.
First during the "updatios" command to put it on it will get to update 767
of 780. Applying "rpm.rte". It will hang there "a really long
time". There is some kind of package ownership thing going on but it will
get past it. It finishes eventually, but I'm not sure how long it took, I
went to bed. In the morning life was good.

There's also a HIPER regarding etherchannel if LACP is being used. I
applied the hot fix and all is well, but......

Anyone else seeing this?
