How to find the memory problem in HP-UX or any H/W or S/W problem in HP-UX

Hi,

Hi:

Your question is quite broad. THe STM and EMS tools will monitor hardware and software. Perhaps you want to read some of the information here:

...beginning with:

You can also use the /etc/dmesg command as root to see the latest messages logged.

In the case of a system reboot, you can look at the file /etc/shutdownlog.

Hello,

As well as what my peers have suggested, the 'page deallocation table', (PDT,) will contain detailed information on memory configuration, as well as any errors, (single or multi bit errors.) This can be viewed and monitored using STM, or CSTM.

Thank you, and regards,
