    What is rmem and wmem?

    Ha I thought! Has Ken not googled this?! So I did it, and could barely find anything.

    I got this from alinux tuning guide at http://www.laukas.com/knbase/linux_special/

    6. Networking

    Enabling and disabling some of the advanced features of TCP: (Usually it is a good idea for these to be enabled)

    /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_timestamps
    /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_window_scaling
    /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_sack

    To enable all these features, for example, do the following as root:

    echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_timestamps
    echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_window_scaling
    echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_sack

    Tuning the default and maximum window sizes:

    /proc/sys/net/core/rmem_default - default receive window
    /proc/sys/net/core/rmem_max - maximum receive window
    /proc/sys/net/core/wmem_default - default send window
    /proc/sys/net/core/wmem_max - maximum send window

    /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_rmem - memory reserved for TCP rcv buffers
    /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_wmem - memory reserved for TCP snd buffers

    The following values would be reasonable for path with a large BDP:

    echo 8388608 > /proc/sys/net/core/wmem_max
    echo 8388608 > /proc/sys/net/core/rmem_max
    Means nothing to me however...

    Got a bit more from http://nfs.sourceforge.net/nfs-howto/performance.html:

    5.7. Memory Limits on the Input Queue
    On 2.2 and 2.4 kernels, the socket input queue, where requests sit while they are currently being processed, has a small default size limit (rmem_default) of 64k. This queue is important for clients with heavy read loads, and servers with heavy write loads. As an example, if you are running 8 instances of nfsd on the server, each will only have 8k to store write requests while it processes them. In addition, the socket output queue - important for clients with heavy write loads and servers with heavy read loads - also has a small default size (wmem_default).

    Several published runs of the NFS benchmark SPECsfs97 specify usage of a much higher value for both the read and write value sets, [rw]mem_default and [rw]mem_max. You might consider increasing these values to at least 256k. The read and write limits are set in the proc file system using (for example) the files /proc/sys/net/core/rmem_default and /proc/sys/net/core/rmem_max. The rmem_default value can be increased in three steps; the following method is a bit of a hack but should work and should not cause any problems:

    Thanks, good info. I ignored the warnings and the install finished without a hitch.

    I'm guessing that since 10gR2's ADAM (Automated Diagnostics and Monitoring) is taking paging into consideration for query optimization, maybe there's more focus on memory params.

    I got the below error when running the Installer:

    $Xlib: connection to "test:0.0" refused by server
    Xlib: No protocol specified

    Exception in thread "main" java.lang.InternalError: Can't connect to X11 window server using 'test:0.0' as the value of the DISPLAY variable.

    I did have my DISPLAY set as follow:

    export DISPLAY=test:0.0


    Any thoughts???

    Um, like "test" is not a valid hostname? Or "test" is not allowing X connections?

    Hi.

    This is what I did:

    Just trying FC3 this morning and hopefully RHEL3 this afternoon

    Cheers

    Has anyone downloaded the documentation zip?
    The main index.html seems screwed up

    Pando:

    No, but at one point yesterday the online installation guide was totally screwed. It said that 10gR2 was only certified against SUSE 7, yet when you start the installer it check for redhat-3, redhat-4, SUSE 9, UnitedLinux 1.0 and asianux1 & 2.

    When I went back later the proper document was showing.

    I get the impression that the current documentation is a rush-job and you might be better relying on the online stuff for a few days while they get it sorted!

    Also, a number of the download links have been broken this morning.

    Cheers
