    Release Information

    Statement introduced in Junos OS Mobility Release 11.2W.


    Specify the maximum number of processes for which Big Translation Lookaside Buffer (BTLB) is supported for use by service applications. Currently, application-level gateway (ALG) and mobility are the service applications supported. If this setting is changed, the PIC reboots.

    The wired process memory, or BTLB, is memory used by the operating system that is pretty much "off limits" to another application. If wired process memory is exhausted, the processes use unwired memory.

    • BTLB is supported only on 16-GB cards. In addition, BTLB is only supported only with total-wired-memory of 14,336 MB.
    • To use wired memory, you need to configure both wired-max-processes and wired-process-mem-size.

      Note: For mobility, we support only a wired-max-processes value of 8, and a wired-process-mem-size value of 1024.


    wired-max-processes—Maximum number of wired processes allowed.

    Range: 1 through 8
    Default: 1
