I have a mutex contention in my E10K
8 processor and 6 GB of RAM.
I recognize the problem through %CPU Use(Sys) > %CPU Use(usr); mpstat ->
smtx > 500
I know that the command lockstat sleep 5,could give you some way to discover
the source of contention.
But I don´t recognize the procedure to do that.
Could you give me the basic procedure ?

Could you give me some hints or orientation based in your experience.

appreciating you collaboartion
