running the swapinfo -m show real results.

Re: swapinfo return strange results

-M Print information about memory paging space only.
So probably when you issue the command;

# swapinfo -m
you cannot see the memory line at bottom, can you post the output it here ?

Re: swapinfo return strange results

Your swap device left disabled, if you issue the command;
# sysdef |grep swapmem_on
OR
# kmtune |grep swapmem_on (for HP-UX 11iv1)
OR
# kctune |grep swapmem_on

you have to see it is probably "0"
can you check this out and post it ?

Re: swapinfo return strange results

hi,

the output with switch -M is ok,

check the man page : -M Print information about memory paging space only.

The -d, -f, -n, -r and -M options can be combined. The default is -dfnrM.

i always use swapinfo -tam
