Aix Memory Usage

by May 12, 2009


I noticed that the memory usage is not fully tracked properly on AIX systems. AIX will assign what it needs to running processes and services and then assign the rest to file caching. The way to track is by 2 metrics: Computational and Non-Computational. Computational represents running processes / services memory usage and Non-Computational represents what is assigned to file caching. We would like to see these metrics and be able to graph and alert.
