NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     SwapManager - view	and manage system swap space

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     /usr/sysadm/bin/runcatalog	/usr/sysadm/catalogdf/SaSwapCatalog.cdf

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     Managers display information about	your system and	provide	access to
     interactive guides	(also called tasks) that let you administer your
     system.  For example, the User Manager displays a list of the user
     accounts currently	on the system and gives	you access to guides like "Add
     a User Account" and "Modify a User	Account."

     In	a Manager window, you can open a guide by choosing its name from the
     Task menu or by clicking its button at the	bottom of the window.

     The Swap Manager monitors the system's swap configuration.	Every 5
     seconds it	uses the swapctl(2) system call	to get the current swap
     information and update its	display.

GUIDES    [Toc]    [Back]

     Guides, also called "tasks," are interactive windows that lead users
     through the steps necessary to perform various system administration
     tasks, such as adding new user accounts and configuring networking	on the

     A guide typically consists	of a series of pages that prompt users to
     enter information or select options. A user navigates through guide pages
     using the Prev and	Next buttons (or corresponding arrow keys).  When the
     user reaches the last page	of a guide and clicks the OK button, the
     system executes one or more privileged commands to	perform	the system
     administration task. These	commands are located in	/usr/sysadm/privcmd.
     See runpriv(1M) for more information about	privileged commands.

     Many of the guides	require	that a user either know	the root password or
     be	assigned the necessary privileges (using the PrivilegeManager(1)) in
     order to perform the task.

     Add Real Swap Space    [Toc]    [Back]
	       This guide lets the user	create a swap file on a	local
	       filesystem and add it to	the system's swap configuration.  The
	       new swap	element	will remain across power-ups until explicitly
	       removed.	 The privileges	needed for this	task are:

	       o    Add	Local File Swap	(addLocalFileSwap(1M)).

	       o    List All Filesystems (listAllDiskFS(1M)), a	default

	       o    Show xlv (xlvShow(1M)), a default privilege

     Add Virtual Swap Space    [Toc]    [Back]
	       This guide lets the user	add virtual swap.  It requires a
	       different privilege from	adding real, logical swap space, since
	       administrators may wish to grant	one privilege and not the
	       other.  The privilege needed for	this task is:

	       o    Add	Virtual	Swap (addVirtualSwap(1M)).

     Remove Swap Space    [Toc]    [Back]
	       This guide lets the user	delete an element of virtual or	real,
	       logical swap space.  The	privilege needed for this task is:

	       o    Remove Swap	(removeSwap(1M))
