Virtual Memory

Hi!
I work with HP-UX and I have to monitorize the use of virtual memory for different processes.
(java processes for Tibco Adapter) And if these processes exceed a limit send a message to the syslog.
I donīt know how to monitorize this...
Should I do a script? or use an aplication, for example glance?

any commands or ideas would be great!!! Smilie
Thanks and regards! Smilie

What type of message are you getting in the syslog.
glance might be a way forward, mwa might also be useful.

I'm trying to use glance.
Is there a way i can know how much virtual memory a process is using?
and print it in a file running glance in the background?

thanks ^_^

There is a memory info program called kmeminfo

goto irtc.hp.com and do a search.

Output might look like the below.

Summary of processes memory usage:

List sorted by physical size, in pages/bytes:
