Abstract: The Parity Fixer (PFX) is a privileged utility program used
to decommission a block of memory in a system-controlled
partition so that it will no longer be available. If a
portion of memory is known to be bad, or is suspected of
causing problems (e.g., the faulty locations identified by a
memory parity-error entry in the error log), PFX can be used
to disable allocations from the offending area so that RSX
will operate safely until a more thorough diagnosis and
repair can be scheduled.
Release notes distributed with each order.
