Description: Start off with adequate true physical memory
Not all AIX 6.1 applications/data allow effective expansion
Active Memory Expansion less effective when CPU utilization is high.
Be sure to consider peak workloads.
Best use: Active Memory Expansion as a way to expand beyond
physical memory limits
Before using to reduce memory purchase, need to understand how
well current and future application data compresses and how much
processor resource available for memory expansion
Additional processor resource part of AIX 6.1 partition and requires
licensing like any other active core
If unsure of your expansion value, consider purchasing true physical
memory initially and then using Active Memory Expansion as a
future MES order after analyzing its use.
