Would prefer to use comands which are already available with HP-UX instead of installing some third party tool.

swapinfo(1m) will give you swap size, used and free.

 

You'll probably have to purchase glance to get memory usage.

Calling pstat_getstatic(2) can get memory size.

Calling pstat_getdynamic(2) can get free memory pages.

Thank You Dennis !!

 

Yeah we checked Glance however looking for some internal commands. We will try what you advised.

 

We also tried vmstat and as much could be understood.. output contains information about Memory Pages. It does not match with what we are looking for.

 

Is there any switch with "vmstat" command which can help ? meaning any particular syntax of vmstat which can provide Memory Usage is MB format.

vmstat -s

 

Probably more information than you can use, but you can grep for the description(s) you need.
