Operating Systems HP-UX OSF/1 swap file low and killing processes! Post 302315311 by vbe on Tuesday 12th of May 2009 04:58:57 AM
Years since I last saw an OSF1 (or decade?...)
From what I remember (it was well before Y2K...) Digital UNIX terminates all processes that failed its allocation of swap space
So I would believe it may filling up some log file somewhere
Now in those days also DEC-UX had 2 swap mode: deferred or immediate, I wonder if you are not in first case
I dont know how it is done, I think if you see a link when looking at /sbin/swapdefault pointing to /dev/rz0... then you are in immediate mode
swapon -s will show the swap
and you create new swap with the same swapon command, it will be lost at next reboot unless you modfy /etc/fstab and reboot after...

Good luck
