memory usage for specific OS or others apps !

Dear Friends ,

We are running oracle on AIX6.1 server . It has 32 GB ram where oracle user 22GB and 10GB for the O/S .

Now my question is , How can I measure , how much memory takes oracle and how much memory takes the OS only .

Is there any specific command to find it memory usage for particular apps (or specificly for OS) both AIX and Linux platform ?

Have you tried nmon? It can be used interactively or it can be set to run in the background and collect data at any specified interval. There is a excel macro to convert the nmon file into an excel spreadsheet. I used it all the time, its very nice.

Hi there,

The svmon command can give you this info. Look at the man page, as there are a lot of options. This should get you started though:
svmon -U -O unit=auto,summary=basic
