Natural 6.1... Memory HP-UX Itanium

We are at looking at 6.2.1…

The issue I have been struggling with is the memory allocation on Unix for Natural.

Natural real memory for every user indicates between 4-28 meg which makes sense using our current buffer pool of 1500 users and 32meg pool.

But the page area allocated is 300 to 500 meg per user. Even if this is a page allocation, my question is why and what does that do to the Unix total resource allocation and usage?

Thanks in advance.
