Modifying the no. of mempools and its effect on Aix - No AMS in effect
Posted on 2011-09-15
Please note: No AMS is active in our environment.
On several Aix servers, 'memory pools'(vmstat -v) variable is different, irrespective of whether they have same physical memory or not. All of running Aix 6.1.TL06, and 'mempools' is dynamic and cannot be modified using 'vmo'. Please clarify my questions as below:
1. Is it possible to keep the 'memory pools' to one?
2. Keeping "memory pools" to one is better or higher number is better?
3. How Aix decides, how many memory pools to create?
Thanks and appreciate every response.
