On a new install of IDS 11.70 UC1GE on Red Hat Enterprise 5 32 bit with 6GB RAM. I noticed the following messages in the online.log file:

Hello.

1) Did you check if thereÂŽs any segment in use? (ipcs command)
2) I had similar troubles here, with no segment used by informix.
I suggest you to take your whole *SHM* portion of the onconfig.std file,
and paste it into your production one. That maybe some mispelling word.
If you cannot start it yet, paste all your memory parameters here, so we
can try to help you out, ok?

Best regards.

To get those messages it appears you need to have the env variable
IFX_LARGE_PAGES set to 1. If that is turned on, then when trying to
start up the server and create the initial shared memory segments, the
oninit process will open up /proc/meminfo looking for HugePages_Free
and Hugepagesize. I'm not familiar with this concept on Linux, but I
would assume it is some sort of OS configuration thing. From the
message you got, it would appear that we found Hugepagesize set to be
0 from our query to /proc/meminfo, at which point we would no longer
attempt to use that feature.

Jacques,

After mistakenly admitting that this worked, I noticed the same error
messages still appearing in the log whenever I startup the engine.

IFX_LARGE_PAGES environment is already set to 1.

cat /proc/meminfo shows the following HugePages settings:

HugePages_Total: 0
HugePages_Free: 0
HugePages_Rsvd: 0
Hugepagesize: 2048 kB

I changed RESIDENT from "-1" to "1" and bounced the engine but the message
still appears.

My shared memory settings in ONCONFIG:

RESIDENT 1
SHMBASE 0x44000000
SHMVIRTSIZE 1024000
SHMADD 8192
EXTSHMADD 8192
SHMTOTAL 0
SHMVIRT_ALLOCSEG 0.000000,3
SHMNOACCESS cpu,num=1,noage

June:

This one setting, at least, is not correct:

SHMNOACCESS cpu,num=1,noage

This looks like your SHMNOACCESS and VPCLASS settings got combined somehow.
Don't think this has anything to do with the warning you are seeing, but....

June:

This one setting, at least, is not correct:

SHMNOACCESS cpu,num=1,noage

This looks like your SHMNOACCESS and VPCLASS settings got combined somehow. Don't think this has anything to do with the warning you are seeing, but....

Jacques,

After mistakenly admitting that this worked, I noticed the same error messages still appearing in the log whenever I startup the engine.

IFX_LARGE_PAGES environment is already set to 1.

cat /proc/meminfo shows the following HugePages settings:

HugePages_Total: 0
HugePages_Free: 0

I changed RESIDENT from "-1" to "1" and bounced the engine but the message still appears.

To get those messages it appears you need to have the env variable
IFX_LARGE_PAGES set to 1. If that is turned on, then when trying to
start up the server and create the initial shared memory segments, the
oninit process will open up /proc/meminfo looking for HugePages_Free
and Hugepagesize. I'm not familiar with this concept on Linux, but I
would assume it is some sort of OS configuration thing. From the
message you got, it would appear that we found Hugepagesize set to be
0 from our query to /proc/meminfo, at which point we would no longer
attempt to use that feature.

You have two messages there. One is caused by SHMTOTAL=0. apparently the
message doesn't make sense. But it's a fact that the version you have has
memory limits.

The other message is caused by IFX_LARGE_PAGES=1 and the engine was brought
online with that in the environment (as the output from onstat -g env
shows).

Regards.

Did informix still start up?

This is indicating that you have not configured huge pages. Informix should still allocate the memory that it needs...it just won't be using "huge pages".

There's some articles online for how to configure huge pages. Set them up, and these warnings will go away.

Did informix still start up?
This is indicating that you have not configured huge pages. Informix should still allocate the memory that it needs...it just won't be using "huge pages".
There's some articles online for how to configure huge pages. Set them up, and these warnings will go away.
