We have SUN SOLARIS 2.6, with 2 GB of RAM.
I have a problem with the CPIO unix command. I use it to back all my
file system to a RAID device (. When ever I run that cpio process , it
sucks mostly all the RAM available and it takes about 5 hours to finish
AND when the system is done, the memory (RAM) stays low and won't come
back until I reboot the system to refresh the memory !!!!!
I wonder if there is a way to refresh the memory or to gain back the
memory was occupied by cpio process !!!! ??
Thanks a lot.
