Adding and activating paging space

To make paging space available to your system, you must add and activate the paging space.

The total amount of paging space is often determined by trial and error. One commonly used guideline is to double the RAM size and use that figure as a paging space target.

Using the SMIT interface, type one of the following fast paths on the command line:
  • To list your current paging space, type: smit lsps
  • To add paging space, type: smit mkps
  • To activate paging space, type: smit swapon
