Physical Memory Utilization

List all the major processes running on a server machine and use the formulas given here to calculate their memory requirements. Add the individual sizes together for total memory requirements.

Use this table as a guide:


Runtime Memory Usage Calculation

Operating System


Adaptive Server

Add together these ASE parameters: total memory + additional netmem + extent i/o buffers

Backup Server

Add: size of the binary + (110Kb * number of stripes)


Size of the binary only (attaches to BS shared memory)

Replication Server

See “memory limit” parameter

Monitor Server

Size of the binary only
