I appreciate your suggestions today. Unfortunately I had to dump the
6.2 and scale back to the 4.12 for now and possibly for good as I
could not find a solution.
Just for point of reference here is a snapshot of the 4.12 box (see
below). Notice the 98% idle. This is what I experienced in the old
box. Most of the time it was idle in a range of 20-70% during busy
times and 70-90% idle during non busy times. On the new box it was
hardly ever idle. I still am not sure what was wrong but we had a
difficult time simulating this as it was quite well tested.
It was almost certainly what I said above. Too bad you weren't able
to follow through with it.
