How to Resize 'fs data' in osview

Hi! everyone!
I'd like to know how to tune the size of "fs data".
In my opinion, "fs data" is concerned with network buffer and system buffer.
Am I right ?
If I am wrong, How can I resize "fs data" ?

Normally it is resized automatically according to system load.
You can use 'systune' to change 'nbuf'. You can also edit
/var/sysgen/mtune/kernel to change 'nbuf,32' and 'nbuf,64'.

You can also use systune to set 'min_file_pages', or edit
/var/sysgen/mtune/kernel to set 'min_file_pages,32' and
'min_file_pages,64'

* min_file_pages: The minimum number of file pages to keep in the cache
*                 when memory gets low.  It is autoconfigured to
*                 3% of the system's memory if it is 0.  When setting,
*                 remember that the page size is 4k in 32 bit kernels
*                 and 16k in 64 bit kernels.

* nbuf: number of  buffers in disk buffer cache. autoconfigure if 0
*
* nbuf auto-config: max(100+KB(mem)/160,6000)

After you systune these values or edit the mtune/kernel file, you
will need to rebuild your kernel and reboot for the change to take effect.

 
 
 

1. Netscape 2.01S 'Missing Post reply data'

Hello SGI Aficionados (yes...I had to look up the spelling ;-)

I have a (hopefully) very simple question about SGI's Netscape 2.01S:

It seems that whenever I receive output from a POST operation the page
renders just fine but the cache doesn't maintain the document.  If I
travel an additional page and try to return with the 'Back' button, I
will simply get:

  <TITLE>Missing Post reply data</TITLE>
  <H1>Data Missing</H1>
  This document resulted from a POST operation and has expired from the
  cache.  If you wish you can repost the form data to recreate the
  document by pressing the <b>reload</b> button.

Now, I can see this being done by the binary:
  (strings `which netscape` | egrep 'Missing Post' )

but I am unable to discover what *causes* this condition to happen.  I
am even more puzzled in that other versions of Netscape (Solaris 2.01)
don't exhibit this behavior and have identical settings vis-a-vis
caches, etc...

Any ideas where I might look further?

Thank you for your time.
