Hi,

What is the maximum virtial memory allowed in

HP-Unix latest version
Solaris latest version
Linux latest version
AIX's latest version

is it 4GB? or have it incresed?

i want to use this in order to predict how many maximum threads run in 1 process of Java virtual machine.

If it's 4Gb then roughly 2048-4096 threads allowed.I don't knwo for any Unix as I workde in windows only

thank you!

You are asking the wrong question...

The amount of virtual memory allowed, is different from the maximum process size, which (AFAIK) is 2Gb on all of the platforms you mention. ( for 32bit OS's ) Certainly is for Solaris 2.5

Even having said this, you will need to do some jiggery pokery with java to get it use this much memory ( may not be possible )...

The amount of memory has only a scant relation to the number of threads you can run - depends how much mem each thread takes up!

4096 threads sounds rather excessive anyhow, you may find that the thread scheduler begins to die under its own weight at this number .....

pls reead ,write up on my question in windows ,Zoppo gave a very informative reply.

you are right in all u said.except
>>>>>The amount of memory has only a scant relation to the number of threads you can run.

In an articel I read that each thread in java has 1Mb VM space allocarted to it (the thread is the Java thread + underlying native thread of OS),since only 2GB allowed for user ,so 2048 threads allowed only max.

so we have to increase page file/swap file size plus increase RAM size to fill gaps.

the final thing is in a server applicayton the number of threads has to be limited,there should be a counter and in a thread pool.right ? that is what we think of now.

thanks ,have more 50 points only, will increase later
