Heap space - scratch, or memory allocated by malloc() is allocated from anonymous memory and mapped read/write.

Look at the /etc/security/limits for the apropiate changes.

Good luck. Hugo.

Note: If you use oracle or DB2 look at www.redbooks.ibm.com
for "Database Performance on AIX
in DB2 UDB and Oracle Environments" SG24-5511-00
