Max memory per user?


Is it possible to set a limit for maximum memory usage per user without PRM?
I'm running HP-UX 11.00.

Re: Max memory per user?

You can limit the amount of data by changing the kernel parameter maxdsiz. However this is system wide (root ignores it).

Or using the ulimit command, which is per user.
