Hi,

I am having some trouble calculating total virtual memory on our Solaris 8

servers. The box has 2048MB of RAM and a 2048MB swap partition. So, the

total virtual memory should be 4096MB (4GB). Running the "swap -s"

produces the following output:

# swap -s

total: 1109000k bytes allocated + 7968k reserved = 1116968k used, 2671016k

available

I expected to find the total amount of VM by simply adding the amount used

with the total available (in k-bytes). Using the values above, this

calculation is 3787984K (leaving about 308MB short of 4GB).

What am I missing here? Does Solaris 8 have some sort of "minfree" space

for VM that is not shown? What is the absolute best way to determine how

much memory is being used (and/or available)?

Thanks,

-Ron
