      vxmemstat - display memory statistics for VERITAS Volume Manager

      vxmemstat [-i interval [-t count]]

      The vxmemstat utility prints memory statistics information.  This
      information is system-wide and not specific to a disk group, volume or
      any other Volume Manager object.

      -i  interval
		Prints memory statistics every interval seconds.

      -t  count Prints the local system time every count intervals.  The
		time interval is specified using the -i interval option.

      The statistics are prefaced by a timestamp showing the current local
      time on the system. Statistics are printed as a one-line output record
      for each memory pool. The records are preceded by two header lines.
      The output line consists of blank-separated fields. All numeric fields
      are in units of kilobytes.

      The following fields are displayed on each line:

      Pool	Name of the memory pool. Memory consumers allocate memory
		from different pools for different purposes.

      Min Size	Minimum amount of memory always reserved for use by
		consumers of the pool. As consumers require more memory,
		additional memory is allocated to the pool for distribution
		to them.

      Max Size	Maximum amount of memory that can be allocated to the pool.
		This is equal to the value assigned to the maximum pool size
		system tunable that corresponds to the pool.

      In Use	Amount of memory (out of that allocated) currently being
		used by consumers of the memory pool.

      Allocated Amount of memory currently allocated to the memory pool. The
		amount of memory allocated to a pool ranges between the
		minimum and the maximum pool size. The amount of allocated
		memory increases as more memory is needed and decreases as
		it is relinquished.

      Max Used	Maximum amount of memory used by consumers from this pool
		since system startup.

      Waiting	Indicates if any I/O is waiting to allocate memory from this
		pool.  This usually indicates that the corresponding tunable
		for the maximum size of this pool needs to be increased.

      The vxmemstat utility exits with a non-zero status if the attempted
      operation fails.	A non-zero exit code is not a complete indicator of
      the problems encountered, but rather denotes the first condition that
      prevented further execution of the utility.

      See vxintro(1M) for a list of standard exit codes.

      To display statistics every 5 seconds and time stamp the output every
      alternate interval, use the command:

	   vxmemstat -i 5 -t 2
