Actually, I have a UNIX question rather than an Ingres question but this
question came up when I was setting up shared memory for Ingres.
How do swap space and shared memory do for Ingres? How is they different
from each other? Are they referring to the same space? I know swap space is
a temporary space for swapping in and out processes from memory, but what is
shared memory? Is it a memory area that we assign for Ingres? Why sometimes
the shared memory is larger than physical memory? How does the OS allocate
the shared memory?
