In this section we discuss the post-completion tasks.
Adjusting your DBMEMPERCENT parameters
The DBMEMPERCENT server option parameter sets a limit on the percentage of the system
memory that is used for the database manager. By default, the percentage of the virtual
address space that is dedicated to the database manager processes is set to 70 to 80 % of
system RAM. To change this setting to a value from 10 to 99 %, modify the
DBMEMPERCENT server option. Ensure that the value allows adequate memory for both the
Tivoli Storage Manager server and any other applications that are running on the system.
AUTO is the default value.
It is generally not necessary to change this setting on a system that is dedicated to a single
Tivoli Storage Manager server. If there are other applications that require significant amounts
of memory on a system, changing this setting to an appropriate amount reduces paging and
improves system performance. For systems with multiple Tivoli Storage Manager servers,
changing this setting for each server is recommended. For example, this could be set to 25%
for each of three servers on a system. Each server could also have a different value for this
setting, as appropriate for the workload on that server.

Autostart setup for Tivoli Storage Manager V6.1
In the following steps we prepare the autostart setup:
1. To ensure that the TSM1 instance starts automatically after a system reboot, the following
line must be inserted into the AIX /etc/inittab file, as shown in Example 17-42.
