The Question is:
my vax is locking up.
orical ver. V5.1,22
getting "%System W-POOLEXPF, Pool expsnsion failure
The Answer is :
Increase your pool, and/or increase your physical memory, and/or decrease
your current physical memory use.
As a first step -- to increase the currently-configured size of the system
pool -- use AUTOGEN on the system, and alter the MIN_ sizes of NPAGEDYN
(and potentially PAGEDYN) via MODPARAMS.DAT to meet (or somewhat exceed)
the current usage as displayed by the SHOW MEMORY/FULL command.
POOLEXPF, pool expansion failure
Facility: SYSTEM, System Services
Explanation: This message signals one of the following conditions:
o There are not enough free physical pages to expand nonpaged
o Another physical page cannot be allocated because doing so
would reduce the number of fluid pages to below the minimum
required to accommodate the current maximum working set
User Action: Try increasing the value of the SYSGEN parameter NPAGEDYN to
reduce the need for pool expansion. If the problem recurs,
consider adjusting the system parameter WSMAX or getting more
memory for the system.
