Error reading syserr file.

Hi,

I have a server V5.1 732 alpha, that when I do:
# /usr/sbin/uerf -r 300 | /usr/bin/head -100 | grep physical
to know the real memory, its shows me:

Error reading syserr file.

What is happening?, What could I do?
Thanks!
Carmen.

Re: Error reading syserr file.

Hi,

fiest of all the real memory you can get with:
grep "physical memory" /var/adm/messages.

It may be, that your binary.errlog is corrupted.

zero the binary.errlog with:
cd /var/cluster/members/member0/adm
fuser binary.errlog #see, if open
/sbin/init.d/binlog stop
cp -p binary.errlog binerrlog
> binary.errlog
/sbin/init.d/binlog start

Re: Error reading syserr file.

Carmen,

uerf as a binary.errlog decoder is already obsolete for some time. You must eather use DECevent(/usr/sbin/dia) or Compaq Analyze(/usr/sbin/ca) depending on the type of CPU in the system.

If above executables are not present on the system, you can install them from the Associated Products CD's (DECevent or WEBES kit)

Another way to see Physical Mem:

vmstat -P | head -4
