Did Sun change something in the usage of swap space between 2.2 and 2.3 ?
We have a program here, which has a bug in it. Its memory image grows and grows. In 2.2, it growed until swap space was completely exhausted, in 2.3
it grows to some 20100 pages = around 80 MB and then hangs, although the
swap space is around 180 MB :
swapfile dev swaplo blocks free
/dev/dsk/c0t3d0s1 32,25 8 166312 137920
/usr/export/SWAP - 8 204792 173008
I didn't save the exact figures with the program*, but both swap
areas were used up to the same percentage alledgedly...
