D Administering Oracle Database on Mac OS X

This appendix contains information about administering Oracle Database on Mac OS X.

D.1 Determining Available and Used Swap Space

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*
