After add-on memory

Hi
If I add-on memory from 2GB to 4GB in my host, should I modify the kernel ? How to do that?

Thanks

I don't think the kernel needs to be modified. Booting should be enough.

Hi,

that's right. If the memory is supported and you see it with show mem on console prompt there is no need to build a new kernel. You may however check system values whether you want to adjust them.

check binary.errlog for memory problems to be sure memory properly works

Rambo,

Also check if the following parameters in /etc/sysconfigtab still make sense after the memory add-on. You might want to increase some of them to make better use of the new memory.

proc:
per-proc-address-space
max-per-proc-address-space
per-proc-data-size
max-per-proc-data-size
per-proc-stack-size
max-per-proc-stack-size
max-proc-per-user

Regards,
Ross
