Memory larger than 4GB

New netware 6.5 sp7 server has larger than 4GB RAM. But Monitor just shows
that system resources is 4GB memory only.

How can I tell Netware to fully use 16GB memory physically installed in this
server?

Are there any documentation can tell how to apply certain memory size as
protected memory to certain services?

Re: Memory larger than 4GB

In addition to the TID Edware pointed out, you can also check the following:

http://wiki.novell.com/index.php/Memory_over_3GB_on_NetWare

Note that 16GB of RAM is certainly a waste of memory in NetWare. The
maximum amounbt of memory that makes a difference in performance is
probably around 8GB. Everything beyond that will just eat electricity and
will not give you better performance.

Have a look at:
TID-10069653 How does NetWare 6.x use memory above 4Gb? ( 09JUN2003)

Thanks, I shall look into it and do a lot more readings.

Thanks Marcel.

I shall sit down and look into this documents. Just browsing it, it seems that the only way to better use the memory above 4GB and below 8GB is to set protection for certain modules. Have not found which are the recommended modules to be assigned with protection yet. Shall read it through first.

NSS can use it to. But it is unlikely you can be running enough on one
server to require such a huge amount of memory, IMO you'd be better off
removing it down to 4gb and using it elsewhere, or switching to a 64bit
OS such as Linux.
