check if 32 or 64 bits in OS and Database??

Hi all!

I'm quite new and wonder how to check if I have 32 bits or 64 bits HP-Ux and then how to check the same in Oracle 8.1.6 standard edition installation.

Thanks!

For HP-UX;

/usr/bin/getconf KERNEL_BITS

shows either 32 or 64bit.

For oracle cd to your oracle install bin directory and do;

file * | grep ELF

If it lists a whole lot of files as ELF-64 executable then its a 64bit install.

Hi

If 64 bit Oracle the svrmgrl startup text will state this:

Oracle8i Enterprise Edition Release 8.1.7.3.0 - 64bit Production

Hi,

For HP-UX,

SAM -> performance monitors -> system properties, press TAB to 'Operation System' and press enter you will see
'OS Kernel Width: 64'

hi,

#/usr/bin/getconf KERNEL_BITS

you will can see kernel bits number (32 or 64 bits)

also, you can get that to excute SAM
Easy going at all.

getconf KERNEL_BITS

or file /stand/vmunix

for oracle svrmgrl will display 64bit or 32bit

or file * oracle_binary_files
