Hi Dennis,
Thansk for your reply,

Mb Mb Mb PCT START/ Mb
TYPE AVAIL USED FREE USED LIMIT RESERVE PRI NAME
dev 20480 1494 18986 7% 0 - 1 /dev/vg00/lvol2

Hi Lijeesh,

Welcome to ITRC forums... you are at right place.



If you really want to analyse which process/arenas are using memory and to check if there is a leak , you may log a case with HP.( if you have a valid support contract).
They will help you.

Apard from that , the below link will help you on this.
