HP-UX(11.23) pstat_getproc() EOVERFLOW

Hi everyone.

I have a trouble on HP-UX(11.23 64bit)

Some application(32bit) have occurred EOVERFLOW at pstat_getproc().

I don't know what condition of application in cae of this error.

I'd like to know the reappearance condition of this error and ask the programmer to fix bug.

It depends, there are several that return EOVERFLOW. But probably it is saying the values are too big to return and the application should be recompiled with -D_PSTAT64.
See pstat(2).

I have read pstat(2) and understand how to solve the problem with -D_PSTAT64 option.

But I need to find the condition of this issue.

while this issue don't occurr at Single-processor server, it occurrs several times at 2-processor server.

Why? The solution is to always use -D_PSTAT64.
It is probably not worth your or the programmer's time to find out why.
There are status flags to indicate exactly which field doesn't fit, pst_valid. There seems to be only three fields that can have problems:
PST_ADDR PST_WCHAN PST_MAXRSS

Basically the value returned doesn't fit in either 2 G or 4 G, 32 bits.
Look at all of the fields in struct pst_status.

The 11.31 man page has lots of details:

Thank you for your suggestion.

I'll try it next Monday.

Hi Dennis

I try to run the application with -D_PSTAT64 option compiled and I've got the solution with confidence.

From 9:00 am to 7:00 pm , the fixed application didn't occurred EOVERFLOW at pstat_getproc()

although the old application got an error per 5times.

Thank you for your advise.

Somehow some of these were too big: PST_ADDR PST_WCHAN PST_MAXRSS
