Oracle performance is critical in requiring fast disk access. Oracle is
virtually self-contained with regard to the subsystems it uses -- it
provides most of it's own. Oracle slowdowns are related to either
problems in the networking software for remote SQL operations, and
disk access witb regard to jobs run locally. If it's slower for local
SQL processing as well as remote I would suspect a problem with the
low level disk interface.
