Re: inetd

Hi John:

In the absence of other information, I'd guess that 'inted' may not have been able to fork a service perhaps due to too many processes already running. 'sar -v' and Glance's (t)able views may reveal what limit you are bumping into.

Re: inetd

Hi,

Sounds as if your process table is full.

if you run 'sar -v' and get the following
message you will have to look at glance as
suggested by James.

sar: Can't open /var/adm/sa/sa07

Failing that please post the value of
'nproc' from your kernel to see if we can
help further. The easiest way is to look in
'sam'.

Re: inetd

Hi (again) John:

Something like:

# sar -v 15 10

...will sample critical table values for 10-intervals of 15-seconds each. Pay particular attention to "proc-sz" and "proc-ov", the current and maxiumum process table size and the number of times it has overflowed, respectively.

Re: inetd

Hello John,

check for the sizes/fillgrades of the "Inode-cache" and
the "file-table", too.
Did you see any "overflow" message one your console?

HTH,
