Re: tru64 top swap free problem

1) Look at 'vmstat -P' output. You will find the break-down for physical memory usage as well. Look at 'free pages'.

2) I didn't understand the question. Can you explain it?

Re: tru64 top swap free problem

Top is an unreliable tool in tru64.

To know the amount of free memory use vmstat or collect -sm. Remember that vmstat ouput is un pages, not in bytes. Collect will give you the output in MB.

Also, to know the usage of the swap space, you can use the swapon -s command.
