slibclean says "Removes any currently unused modules in kernel and library memory."
How do you find/identify "currently unused modules in kernel and library memory"?

AIX kernel jugling tools are "proprietary" (like vmtune or schedtune)
Basically this is a program that can help with upgrading libc without rebooting system.

When AIX loads a shared module into the shared library segment of the address space, it maintains a use count for that module. slibclean will identify unused shared modules because they have a use count of zero.
