Regarding nmon and large pages

Hi Members, To check the large pages configuration in AIX, this is what we use: "nmon" followed by "Enter Key" followed by "L" (without any double quotes) Is there any way that we can achieve the same in a single command. Regards, Aditya (5 Replies)

Proc::PID::File - a module to manage process id files SYNOPSIS
use Proc::PID::File; die "Already running!" if Proc::PID::File->running(); Process that spawn child processes may want to protect each separately by using multiple pidfiles. my $child1 = Proc::PID::File->new(name => "lock.1"); my $child2 = Proc::PID::File->new(name => "lock.2"); which may be checked like this: <do-something> if $child1->alive(); and should be released manually: $child1->release(); DESCRIPTION
This Perl module is useful for writers of daemons and other processes that need to tell whether they are already running, in order to prevent multiple process instances. The module accomplishes this via *nix-style pidfiles, which are files that store a process identifier. The module provides two interfaces: 1) a simple call, and 2) an object-oriented interface Simple Interface The simple interface consists of a call as indicated in the first example of the Synopsis section above. This approach avoids causing race conditions whereby one instance of a daemon could read the pidfile after a previous instance has read it but before it has had a chance to write to it. running [hash[-ref]] The parameter signature for this function is identical to that of the ->new() method described below in the OO Interface section of this document. The method's return value is the same as that of ->alive(). OO Interface The following methods are provided: new [hash[-ref]] This method is used to create an instance object. It automatically calls the ->file() method described below and receives the same paramters. For a listing of valid keys in this hash please refer to the aforementioned method documentation below. In addition to the above, the following constitute valid keys: verify = 1 | string This parameter implements the second solution outlined in the WARNING section of this document and is used to verify that an existing pidfile correctly represents a live process other than the current. If set to a string, it will be interpreted as a regular expression and used to search within the name of the running process. Alternatively, a 1 may be passed: For Linux/FreeBSD, this indicates that the value of $0 will be used (stripped of its full path); for Cygwin, $^X (stripped of path and extension) will be used. If the parameter is not passed, no verification will take place. Please note that verification will only work for the operating systems listed below and that the OS will be auto-sensed. See also DEPENDENCIES section below. Supported platforms: Linux, FreeBSD, Cygwin debug Any non-zero value turns debugging output on. Additionally, if a string is passed containing the character M, the module name will be prefixed to the debugging output. file [hash[-ref]] Use this method to set the path of the pidfile. The method receives an optional hash (or hash reference) with the keys listed below, from which it makes a path of the format: $dir/$name.pid. dir Specifies the directory to place the pid file. If left unspecified, defaults to /var/run. name Indicates the name of the current process. When not specified, defaults to basename($0). alive Returns true when the process is already running. Please note that this call must be made *after* daemonisation i.e. subsequent to the call to fork(). If the verify flag was set during the instance creation, the process id is verified, alternatively the flag may be passed directly to this method. touch Causes for the current process id to be written to the pidfile. release This method is used to delete the pidfile and is automatically called by DESTROY method. It should thus be unnecessary to call it directly. locktime [hash[-ref]] This method returns the mtime of the pidfile. AUTHOR
Erick Calder <ecalder@cpan.org> ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
1k thx to Steven Haryanto <steven@haryan.to> whose package (Proc::RID_File) inspired this implementation. Our gratitude also to Alan Ferrency <alan@pair.com> for fingering the boot-up problem and suggesting possible solutions. DEPENDENCIES
For Linux, FreeBSD and Cygwin, support of the verify option requires availability of the ps utility. For Linux/FreeBSD This is typically found in the procps package. Cygwin users need to run version 1.5.20 or later for this to work. WARNING
This module may prevent daemons from starting at system boot time. The problem occurs because the process id written to the pidfile by an instance of the daemon may coincidentally be reused by another process after a system restart, thus making the daemon think it's already running. Some ideas on how to fix this problem are catalogued below, but unfortunately, no platform-independent solutions have yet been gleaned. - leaving the pidfile open for the duration of the daemon's life - checking a "ps" to make sure the pid is what one expects (current implementation) - looking at /proc/$PID/stat for a process name - check mtime of the pidfile versus uptime; don't trust old pidfiles - try to get the script to nuke its pidfile when it exits (this is vulnerable to hardware resets and hard reboots) - try to nuke the pidfile at boot time before the script runs; this solution suffers from a race condition wherein two instances read the pidfile before one manages to lock it, thus allowing two instances to run simultaneously.
