AIX : Swap & Paging commands

Here are some commands that I came through to manage AIX paging and swapping.
List the paging space available in the system :
Use lsps command.

You can also see the paging details in “prtconf” command.

Adding additional paging space : Use mkps command.

Verify the newly added paging space:

Once added, you can see the paging space in /etc/swapspaces.

Check the status using lsps command.

One thought on “AIX : Swap & Paging commands

  1. Better is check swap via svmon -O unit=MB
    where you can see swap size which aix using. It can be different when you resized lv.
