Re: MAXDSIZE is small

Welcome to the Forums.

My best suggestion is to see if your employer will pay for you to take a class. Then I highly recommend you purchase a book on HPUX Admin start reading! Or simply do a SEARCH here for something like 'increase kernel parm'. These questions have been answered many, many times.

SAM still runs in 11.23. Give it a try..

SMH replaced SAM in 11.31 and you can change parms from the SMH webconsole.

Or you can use the command line kmtune [man kmtune]

You enlarge swap by either adding f/s swapspace or mostly it is done by adding additional disk to vg00 and setting these disk as swapdisk. Do a SEARCH on 'add swap or add swapdisk' and check out the bounty of answers already posted here.

Rgrds,

Actually you should use kctune(1m) on 11.23.
kctune maxdsiz=0x80000000 # 2 Gb
Note: maxdsiz_64bit must already be larger than that.

Use kctune parameter=value


3)how to enlarge Swap Size ??

Use swapon command. Swap space must be contiguous. Hence adding extra swap would be easier than enlarging.
