That should have been:
crom:/etc# ipcs -um
------ Shared Memory Status --------
segments allocated 114
pages allocated 1108
pages resident 411
pages swapped 7
Swap performance: 296 attempts 7 successes
> crom:/tmp/3c90x-1.0.0# ipcs -lm
> ------ Shared Memory Limits --------
> max number of segments = 128
> max seg size (kbytes) = 32768
> max total shared memory (kbytes) = 16777216
> min seg size (bytes) = 1
BTW. Anyone know where you can increase the number of segments ? sysctl
-a doesn't seem to mention anything, and a quick look at the shm.[ch] in
the source isn't much help.
