I need to increase maxvg parameter on my production server, currently it is set to 50 i want to make it to 250
i want to understand the amount of memory it will utilize as i am more concerned about system performance also.
my server is having 16 Gb with 8 Cpus
B.11.23 U ia64 system.
more specifically, i want to know how much memory does it utilizes for one volume group when it is activated.

From the manpages for 'maxvgs(5)', about 4-8 KB of lockable physical memory is used for each increment in the 'maxvgs' value:

I would have thought 100 might be a good number.
Oh yes, maxvgs no longer exists for HP-UX 11iv3

It will not utilize much memory
Approximately 4-8KB of lockable physical memory is consumed by advancing the maxvgs value by 1.
I don't think it's much if you consider 250 max vg parameter then it consume aprox 2000kb of memory.
