Subject: [ILUG] shared memory..
I'm having some wierd "resource not availible" errors over the last
while, and I think it's got to do with shared memory. I'm running 2.2.17,
so it's not a wierd ass shm filesystem thing.
Anyway. How do I check what shared memory is in use, and what's the max ?
crom:/proc# cat /proc/sys/kernel/shmall
crom:/proc# cat /proc/sys/kernel/shmmax
That looks good. But everthing from shells to IMLIB are giving out about
not having enough.
