some messages in the message file

OS is digital unix v4.0d.There are lots of messages in the /var/adm/messages like the following:
May 2 17:40:56 HOSTAA vmunix: task table is full
May 2 17:41:27 HOSTAA last message repeated 20 times
May 2 17:43:28 HOSTAA last message repeated 139 times
May 2 17:46:36 HOSTAA last message repeated 217 times
What do they means?Thank you.

Re: some messages in the message file

task table full -> increase kernelparameter (subsystem proc)
Help() { FirstReadManual(urgently); Go_to_it;; }

Re: some messages in the message file

nicolas pointers includes my suggestion as I saw. So if you need details have a look into the given pointer.
Help() { FirstReadManual(urgently); Go_to_it;; }

Re: some messages in the message file

Hi Hy! ;-)

you should increase the values in /etc/sysconfigtab as described in the pointer. Don't do it in the config file.

greetings,

Re: some messages in the message file

One more,

you could post the output of sysconfig -q proc.

thanks,

Re: some messages in the message file


A lot of the info behind the pointer in reply#1 is irrelevant or dead-wrong, and thus confusing for the original poster.

If you have a V4.0F or V4.0G on your site besides the ancient V4.0D, use the command
"man sys_attrs_proc" to check the info on the adhoc sysconfig(tab) parameters:
----> task-max
----> thread-max
and their relation to the parameter maxusers.

sysconfig -q proc | grep -e maxusers -e task-max -e thread-max
will learn you their present values.


Have fun,
Johan.

Re: some messages in the message file

another approach is to look inside the admin guide containing a kernel tuning section describing the parameters and how to set it correctly.
Help() { FirstReadManual(urgently); Go_to_it;; }
