HP-UX v3 memory requirement

Does anyone know how much memory does v3 requires over v2 and v1? I understand v3 requires more memory, but how much more?

Thx in advance.

Re: HP-UX v3 memory requirement

Hi:

As with most things, your-mileage-may-vary. The exact values will depend upon various kernel settings and your server configuration.

If, however, you compare the documentation for 11.23 and 11.31 you will find that 11.11 or 11.23 require a minimum of about 1GB while 11.31 needs about 1.5GB.

This is documented in the respective installation and update guides for each release in the chapter discussing system requirements. For example:

Hi (again):

Given the the discrete values I cited along with the official references, what part of your question hasn't been answered?

Hi Trojan36,

HP-UX 11i v3 requires 1.5 GB of memory for the HP-UX 11i v3 Base Operating Environment and minimal applications. Additional memory is required for optimal performance and additional software and applications including higher level OEs: check application specifications for additional memory requirements.

11iv3 requires a MINIMUM of 1.5GB to install, let alone run.
I use 2GB as an absolute minimum
