This appendix contains information about administering Oracle Database on Mac OS X.
Mac OS X dynamically creates swap files as required in the
/private/var/vm directory. When running Oracle Database, ensure that you have at least 1 GB of available disk space on the root (
/) file system to accommodate newly created swap files.
To determine how much disk space is available in the
/private/var/vm directory, run the following command:
$ df -k /private/var/vm
To determine the amount of swap space currently in use, run the following command:
$ du -sk /private/var/vm/swapfile*
