Well there's not much to say. maxssiz is the maximum size of the stack (which is a separate segment). maxdsiz is the maximum size of the data seqment. And even though you didn't ask, maxtsiz is the maximum size of the text segment.

I would strongly suggest that you sam to increase them. sam->kernel configuation->configurable parameters will get you there. It is possible to do this from the command line, but it's a tedious. poorly automated process with lots of opportunities to make fatal mistakes.

On HP-UX, swapon is the command to add a swap area. And swapinfo is the command to see how much swap is being used.
