I have installed FreeAXP with Alpha 8.4. I only have 128M in memory. What do you recommend the size of pagefile and swapffile should be? They seem to be filling up to easily.

thanks,
Thein

Thein,

as a general rule of thumb, page- and swapfiles should never be more than 50% utilized. It depends on your system load, how big you need to set them.

Let AUTOGEN do the calcuation via using: @SYS$UPDATE:AUTOGEN SAVPARAMS SETPARAMS FEEDBACK or manually make them bigger using @SYS$UPDATE:SWAPFILES.COM

What I was trying to do is install Oracle 10g client software on a 128M RAM FreeAXPsmiley. I read it later that you have to have 512M of RAM to install the client. So it's not strange that the pagefile was filling up. Is it possible to use a PostgreSQL client on FreeAXP OpenVMS? Has anybody done that? smiley

Eisner was upgraded to the current Multinet Release. As part of that a new host key was generated. The old key was incompatible with newer Linux.

ssh to eisner is now giving (on linux) "WARNING: REMOTE HOST IDENTIFICATION HAS CHANGED!" , Has the server key in fact changed ?

HPE only makes the most current version of OpenVMS Alpha / IA64 /VAX available to hobbyists. When I had access to the Alliance 1 program it was the same. No public downloads are allowed by HPE.
