The Question is:
We are having a VAX-3400 system with 20mb memory using DSSI type interface for
disks. In that system, if we give "sh memory" command following is displayed.
Tot free in use modified
Main mem 40960 10326 29083 1551
Tot free in use largest
Non paged 1212416 179504 1032912 124544
Paged 947712 253312 694400 238576
free reservable total
Swapfile.sys 14400 14400 14400
swapfile1.sys 6592 6592 6592
pagefile.sys 59073 -8450 66000
pagefile1.sys 58041 -8307 65992
In the above output why the pagefile.sys and
pagefiel.sys the reservable memory is coming in
negative values. (It will be better if the term
"reservable" is explained).
Running autogen recommends to increase the pagedyn parameter. Other than this
no recommendations is significant. Please let us know whether changing the
pagedyn, npagedyn or increasing the pagfile.sys will solve the problem. The
system response is very ve
slow. Is there any way to increase it by modifying the sysgen parameters.
If any ohter input is required to solve the problem, please inform us, we will
send it across.
I shall be grateful to you, if some light is thrown on this problem.
Anticipating your valuable reply at the earliest.
With Regards ...
The Answer is :
Through acquisition and reading of the OpenVMS FAQ, you will learn
what a negative reservable count means.
