Re: command to view memory on hp Integrity server 11.31

Hi,
what operating environment are you using? Do you have glance installed?

#glance
and press 'm' for memory report or 'c' for cpu report.

some free tools:
man sar ; vmstat ; top

kmeminfo can be obtained only from your HP support.

Re: command to view memory on hp Integrity server 11.31

Hi,

when i using the # glance command i see this output

Total VM : 32.6gb Sys Mem : 9.1gb User Mem: 12.6gb Phys Mem : 31.9gb
Active VM: 27.6gb Buf Cache: 0mb Free Mem: 116mb FileCache: 10.0gb
MemFS Blk Cnt: 0 MemFS Swp Cnt: 0

what is the meaning of "user mem" and "sys mem" and other.

and i see the memory utilization it's 100% what is the reason for that?

Thanks

kmeminfo is officialy distributed only by HP, so you can not just download it, but ask your HP representative to get it.

Sys Mem should be memory used by system processes and User mem used by user processes, but I'm not sure about this, should refer to any documentation on glance. Basically, what you need to check, is if there are any page outs (Swapping), if they do, then you start having problems with performance.... Also in 'vmstat' command output, you can see 'po' which stands for 'page out'.
It does not mean that when your memory utilization is at 100%, that you must have problems with performance.

Hi,
Calling HP support mean calling your HP support , number included in the contract .. so , you must have Software Support to get kmeminfo earlier version is 10.21 .

this site helps you to get number of HP Software support, but kmeminfo is not supported in HP , so you have just to request for Tools :

Memory is expensive so you want to use all of it. What you aren't using for programs and the kernel, the rest can be used for cache.
