Shared memory instances
Posted on 2011-03-22
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
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
