What shared memory segments are associated with a process?

In Linux (ES3/5) I am able to identify the shared memory segments that are associated with a given process, viz.

ds90g> for a in */maps ; do^Jcat $a | grep SYSV^Jdone
67f5b000-68161000 rw-s 00000000 00:06 5537800    /SYSV00000000 (deleted)
87f5b000-87fdb000 rw-s 00000000 00:06 5472262    /SYSV00000dbc (deleted)
67f5b000-68161000 rw-s 00000000 00:06 5537800    /SYSV00000000 (deleted)
87f5b000-87fdb000 rw-s 00000000 00:06 5472262    /SYSV00000dbc (deleted)
67f5b000-68161000 rw-s 00000000 00:06 5537800    /SYSV00000000 (deleted)
77f5b000-77fdb000 rw-s 00000000 00:06 5505031    /SYSV00000dbe (deleted)
87f5b000-87fdb000 rw-s 00000000 00:06 5472262    /SYSV00000dbc (deleted)
67f5b000-68161000 rw-s 00000000 00:06 5537800    /SYSV00000000 (deleted)
77f5b000-77fdb000 rw-s 00000000 00:06 5505031    /SYSV00000dbe (deleted)
87f5b000-87fdb000 rw-s 00000000 00:06 5472262    /SYSV00000dbc (deleted)

However, I do not know the equivalent method in AIX (5.x, 6.x). Is there one?

Cheers,
Mark

Hi,
use
ipcs -m -a
The PID of the creating process is in the cPID column, the PID of the process that last attached or detached the segment is in the LPID column.
"-m" (see above) shows shared memory segments. To see message queues use "-q" instead, to see semaphores use "-s" instead.
Or use "-a" to see all of the three.

... and to explore the virtual memory usage of a process further, try
svmon -P pid
