RHEL x86_64 - Hugepages enabled - sar -B shows huge pgpout/s values
 
Hi All,

We have RHEL linux and run Oracle 11GR2 2 node RAC. since we have huge SGA's and since the system was showing heavy paging activity as reported by sar -B, we enabled Hugepages on the system.

Below are the system details :

Questions :
1) The pgpout/s values as shown by sar -B.. Are these normal? The system is not loaded in anyways.
2) Oralce and sys admins say they do not find any issues but my Oracle OEM says that huge paging activity at the system level.

Could you give insights to the pgpout/s values what it means and what are some acceptable values ?

Linux version 2.6.18-164.el5 Red Hat 4.1.2-46

Hello and Welcome to LinuxQuestions,

Please don't post your question in multiple forums, that will only confuse you and us on to where the conversation is taking place. Stick to one thread per question/problem. Reported as duplicate of this one.

Kind regards,

Eric
