Re: as I believe a swap area

Hi,

Could you please explain the question?

/vg00/lvol2 is your swap already!!!

what you mean by "Additional"

Do you want to increase the swap space.

Re: as I believe a swap area

What does "swapinfo -tam" show for your current swap?

Re: as I believe a swap area

Hi,

increasing the size of lvol2 is a pain ( as it is a contigeous volume).

You may need to restore an Ignite backup or use DRD for that.

Now , adding aditional swap is very easy. There are several options.

Beofore that, as Dennis said, you should review your swap usage and decide whether you need aditional space or not!!!

#swapinfo -tam
will give you all stories.

Hi,

If you want create additional swap...

create another lvol and do a swapon on that.

Consider the high performance disk which you are choosing to create the lvol in view of performance and IO

Hi,

Just to guide, some good reading that would clear all your doubts on swap - primary or if only needed, secondary -- from our own ITRC :-)
