shared memory not removing properly.
I am using some geophysics applications and the data volumes are too high. sometimes my system used hang and i used to kill the X session. while i respawn the application, and while loading the data it used to say that the project was still in use. In IRIX if i fire the "ipcs -a" command it will list the shared memory objects. I can remove by "ipcrm -m shmemid".
But in RHEL 5, these commands are working but its not getting removed from memory. If i fire the "ipcs -a" command, again it shows the same shared memory id and size of the project.
How to flush these shared memory things from system?. my system has 64 GB RAM, 102 GB swap space and Intel Xeon X5450 @ 3.00 GHz
