SUMMARY vxfs and Oracle

   Thanks to all who replied.
It turns out that there are year 2000 issues with this version of vxfs, so I upgraded it. Patch 108019 will actually take you up to version 3.2.6.
    Patch 105181-16 was also applied, as searching on Sunsolve implied this patch would help.

The result now is that the creating indexes which took hours, now takes about 20 minutes. Before hand, the disks where more or less idle during this process, but now the operation manages to get the disks fully utilised.

I have not tried changing the mount options, yet, but for those of you who want to try, these where the suggested options:-
convosync=direct,delaylog and convosync=dsync,mincache=dsync
