shaktinaik is on a distinguished road

my solutions for a step slider bearing in ANSYS fluent while using a cavitation boundary condition is not getting converged. the variation in result value obtained is not more than 5%. (say for 500th iteration and 600th iteration).

is this an issue?? can anybody help me how to obtain convergence when using cavitation boundary condition in ansys fluent? also can anyone throw some light on cavitation bubble?? how is it important?
