    Hello Shishir,

    as Edward said, AIX is designed to use all memory available so having only a small fraction of it free is not necessarily a sign of bad behaviour.

    Do you see paging on your system ? Is the swap space heavily used ?

    Anyway, you should have a lok at note 973227, it explains very clearly how Virtual Memory Management works in AIX and states what parameters you should tune.

    AIX will always look like that - showing not alot free.

    Check ST02 for swaps to determine if you really have a problem and be sure to look at memopry management notes - specific for AIX. Different from SUN/HP, etc.

    Also be sure you are not allocating Oracle SGA too large for a dev box.
