The following AIX commands assist in managing paging space (also known as swap space):
|chps(1)||Changes attributes of a paging space.|
|lsps(1)||List attributes of a paging space.|
|mkps(1)||Add an additional paging space to the system.|
|rmps(1)||Removes a paging space from the system.|
|swapon(1)||Specifies additional devices for paging and swapping.|
If a large paging space is required, you should place one paging logical volume for each hard disk. This allows scheduling of paging across multiple disk drives.
