maximum size of a ramdisk on AIX 5.3


Do you know what is the maximum size I can use to create a ramdisk on AIX 5.3? I m pretty sure i've seen somewhere i can use more than 2 Gb but I can't remember where. I need to do some recommandations for one of my customer and they'll need to create a ramdisk of 20 Gb. Can this be done?

Not sure if you had this read already but there is no note about a limit.

I just created one with 4GB with no problem. So I just guess 20 GB will not be a problem either.
man page also states that you can create up to 64 RAM disks - so maybe that helps too.
