real/virtual memory

real/virtual memory

Post by emmanuelbocq.. » Tue, 01 Jun 1999 04:00:00

Im running AIX 4.3.2 on a Risc RS6000,
It has 512 MB of real Memory
       1384 MB of paging space
I am running the 2.1.5

When I run the monitor I Get:

free        4 MB    154 MB
procs     110 MB   1229 MB
files     397 MB
total     512 MB   1384 MB

and when I run lsps -a:

Page Space  Physical Volume   Volume Group
Size   %Used  Active  Auto  Type
paging00    hdisk0            rootvg
872MB       5     yes   yes    lv
hd6         hdisk0            rootvg
512MB       8     yes   yes    lv

Can anyone explain me the difference between
the paging space utilisation ????

1. vmstat and real/virtual memory question

Can anyone tell me where the utility "vmstat" gets the information it
displays for the memory 'swap' and 'free' columns?

I am currently working on a SNMP agent in which I need current
information on max memory, available memory, max swap space, and
available swap space. I am currently pulling CPU usage out of the
"cpu_list" structure in the kernel address space. Could someone point me
in the right direction to get information for real and virtual memory?

Any help would be appreciated.
