Hi Again,

nflocks - maximum number of file locks

http://docs.hp.com/en/B3921-60631/nflocks.5.html


Possibly you may need to increase nflock (reboot not required). Somewhere around 350-400.

Hi,

Will it reduce the filesize of mqueue ... and so of /var ??

Hi Prakash,

You may please check /var/adm/syslog/syslog.log.

Hi Again,

>>>mqueue under /var/spool is increasing contineusly which cause /var 100%.

I do not think nflocks will reduce "used space" in /var.
Rather you should find out why the mqueue is increasing continuously.
Investigate from sendmail side.

Yes R.K.

My issue is to reduce the used space. as its eating my /var space.

can i delete this directory ( FYI : not able to delete this directory by command rm -rf mqueue)
