INIT: Paging space low

Post by Scott J Ellentu » Sun, 13 Dec 1992 10:04:09



Hi all,

        I got this error when I was re-compiling X11R5 on the XTouch.c
file.  Currently I look like :

Page Space  Physical Volume   Volume Group    Size   %Used  Active  Auto
hd6         hdisk1            rootvg          32MB      78     yes   yes

And :

        1) I am the only user on the system.
        2) ps -ef yields :

INIT: Paging space low

The kernel...  What 3.2 are you running ?

Quote:>(16M RAM, 32M paging)

Definitely not enough paging,  I would suggest you to add 32 or 64
more megabytes of paging space (my 110 megs get filled in around 25
days and require a reboot).

1. INIT: Paging Space is low

Hi,
I recently got above message often on my console, I guess because my
rootvg is almost full, but my SMIT is currently not working. Can anyone
tell me how to solve this problem ( I mean which commands I can type
since my SMIT is not working.)
Thanks much.

2. g++ and STL?

3. RS/6000 SIGDANGER / low paging space

4. [RFC] __init and friends support for loadable modules

5. Paging Space Low

6. yp_all: cln_call: RPC: Unable to receive....

7. Paging Space Low warning

8. mirroring programs ... can they do this?

9. what is generating these paging space low messages?

10. SIGDANGER - page space low

11. Q's on init man page, init, serial port config?

12. Fix: Init page count for all pages during higher order allocs
