We are using Progress 7.3A15 on SCO UNIX 3.2v4.2 on a machine with 96
Mbyte memory. I am trying to get one of the databases to use 20 Mbytes
or so of shared memory.
I do not seem to be able to set -B (buffers) server start-up parameter
above about 3000 (or about 4 Mbytes), even with SHMMAX set to 8 or 16
Mbytes, without running into problems when trying to start (self
service) clients. (Progress errors 1147 or 1149).
Progress tech support tell me that there is a SCO recognised SCO bug
with SHMMAX, and that I should set SHMMAX no greater than 4 Mbytes and
increase SHMSEG to compensate.
Can anyone comment (usefully) before I start mucking about?
It will mean another late evening wasted if it does not work.
