Shared memory instances

Hello experts,

I m quite new to Sun solaris, and I have SUN vFire 240 series server used for an application and recently the application created an error report stating that there was a problem with certain shared memory locations

     ID    Size
      0
    414   54307   /db/sports_aps2_q10
    315   54011   /db/sports_aps2
    118   54011   /db/sports_aps2
     29   54011   /export/data/db/sports_aps2
     30   54307   /export/data/db/sports_aps2_q10

Now the application owner asked me if I could kill/free up the shared memory locations going by ID. I had no clue how to do it.However the issue was fixed by tuning the application itself.

Though i would like to know how could i administer share memory as a root user and clear it if required.

Thanks in advane

Hi,

the appropriate command is "ipcrm".

Use "ipcrm -m ID for memory segments, "ipcrm -q ID for message queues and "ipcrm -s ID for semaphores.

The first column ("T") indicates the type - segment (m), queue (q) or semaphore (s).
