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: 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.
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>
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
Any ideas where I might look further?
Thank you for your time.
