[LDM #FNS-542635]: not started


Sweet! I didn't know about the free(1) utility.

Unfortunately, that utility isn't available on all Unix systems (Solaris 
doesn't have it, for example). The top(1) utility is more widespread -- so I 
use it.

I'd like know why ldmadmin(1) isn't getting what it needs from your top(1). 
Would you please send me the output of the following commands:

    uname -a
    top -\?
    regutil | grep top
