  1. paging space usage question

    Hi Everyone

    When a system is being used very heavly, the paging space goes up to
    28% (lsps -s). However, when there are no users and little activity
    the paging space is still at 28%. When will this go down? Is there a
    command to "flush" the paging space out? Is this normal? If so, why
    does it do this?

    Once the process exits that has pages on paging space then those pages
    will be freed up.

    svmon -Pgt 10 ## will show you the procs with pages on paging space.
