psmshell - PSM memory management test shell
psmshell allocates a region of partition_size bytes of system memory, places it under PSM management, and offers the user an interactive "shell" for testing various PSM management functions. psmshell prints a prompt string (": ") to stdout, accepts a command from stdin, executes the command (possibly printing a diagnostic message), then prints another prompt string and so on. The locations of objects allocated from the PSM-managed region of memory are referred to as "cells" in psmshell operations. That is, when an object is to be allocated, a cell number in the range 0-99 must be specified as the notional "handle" for that object, for use in future commands. The following commands are supported: h The help command. Causes psmshell to print a summary of available commands. Same effect as the ? command. ? Another help command. Causes psmshell to print a summary of available commands. Same effect as the h command. m cell_nbr size The malloc command. Allocates a large-pool object of the indicated size and associates that object with cell_nbr. z cell_nbr size The zalloc command. Allocates a small-pool object of the indicated size and associates that object with cell_nbr. p cell_nbr The print command. Prints the address (i.e., the offset within the managed block of memory) of the object associated with cell_nbr. f cell_nbr The free command. Frees the object associated with cell_nbr, returning the space formerly occupied by that object to the appropriate free block list. u The usage command. Prints a partition usage report, as per psm_report(3). q The quit command. Frees the allocated system memory in the managed block and terminates psmshell.
"0" psmshell has terminated.
No configuration files are needed.
No environment variables apply.
IPC initialization failed. ION system error. Investigate, correct problem, and try again. psmshell: can't allocate space; quitting. Insufficient available system memory for selected partition size. psmshell: can't allocate test variables; quitting. Insufficient available system memory for selected partition size.
