I am running a series of tests from a script that have a habit of running a box out of memory. The simple solution on other linux boxes is to echo "3" > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches but this command doesn't work on AIX. Is there an AIX equivalent to this command?

You'll probably have to address this to IBM support, as this is a proprietary UNIX system without all the nice things that Linux has for us. –  mdpc Dec 18 '12 at 19:23
