This week I started seeing this in my syslog:
kernel: Approaching the limit on PV entries, consider increasing either
the vm.pmap.shpgperproc or the vm.pmap.pv_entry_max sysctl.
I changed the shpgperproc to 800 from 200, but I am still getting the
message. These are my current settings:
I didn't want to arbitrarily adjust the settings without understanding
them. I could not find any good information out there on what to adjust
these values to, or what to base them off of.
I recently added mod_perl2 to our lightly-loaded server so I'm guessing
that is where this came from. Anyone have good information on how to
handle this? The server is a 7.1-amd64 with 6GB RAM, load averages:
0.20, 0.21, 0.26.
