SEG.NLM: NetWare Memory Analyzer


The use of SEG.NLM on a server having memory problems can decrease the problem resolution time. The statistics are taken from the Operating System itself and printed on a screen on the server once every 5 seconds, and to a file (sys:\system\seg.csv) once every 30 minutes (by default). SEG will also output once every 4 hours to a text file about the server's memory configuration (sys:\system\segstats.txt). There is a menu built in (use the slash key '/' to access it). The other features of the NLM are found on the bottom bar of the screen and are accessible by use of a function key.

Customers that use this tool typically are troubleshooting memory leaks, memory hogs, or memory fragmentation issues on NetWare.

Version 2.00.17.

    I actually loaded up this tool when I first set up my 6.5 server, and have kept it running ever since. It does a pretty good job of helping you with troubleshooting misbehaving NLMs as well. I had a real issue with Pervasive 9.5 and used this tool to help resolve where it was using up so much memory in order to tune it accordingly. Also, it allows me to see how NLMs change when things are updated--like Netshield.

    It's a great tool! Keep it for ongoing use as well.

    Great work on this Mike. Very useful.
