comment What creates CPU I/O wait but no disk operations?
Thanks, but in this case there's no NFS and no FUSE. I'll add that to the question too.

comment Do you consider Java on your Linux server to be a problem?
True, but there's lots of apps that "require" 1.4. (Whether they really do or not is another question, but many claim only that for support.)

Sounds like that depends on the app in question, but yes I see your point that Java apps tend to dump crazy traces and log in weird ways (two lines per log entry?? are you kidding me??)

Fair enough. Is that enough to make you go look for another product, or do you just think, "Ug, oh well I'll give it a shot and see." ?

Thanks. Good point on the tight dependency on JVMs. Do you worry about having both 1.5 and 1.6 JVMs, or is the problem more like "I need 1.5_08b" ?
