Known Issues

  1. The HP-UX 11.0 default value for maximum threads per process is 64, which may be too low for WebLogic Server and many Java server applications in general. When the value is too low, WebLogic Server may have problems starting up.
  2. BEA recommends that you use the maximum kernel setting for the max_thread_proc and maxusers parameters. Setting maxusers to a higher value increases other machine-wide limits, such as nkthread (the maximum number of kernel threads). The following table provides some examples.


    Old Value

    New Value





    Maximum threads per process




    Soft file limit per process




    Influences other parameters




    Number of threads total on the system




    Maximum number of processes




    Number of pending timeouts

  3. If you upgrade from 8.1 SP4 or SP5 to 8.1 SP6 by using SmartUpdate or the Upgrade Installer on an HP-UX 11.0 or 11i on PA-RISC configuration, and then try to use the same tool to downgrade from 8.1 SP6 to 8.1 SP5 or SP4, the downgrade attempt may fail. BEA recommends that you set the maxdsiz kernel parameter to a minimum value of 1GB.
