Creating an Application Instance

Run a new application, or a new instance of an existing application, from the command line.

About this task

You cannot start an application using Memory Machine Dashboard. Instead, use the mm command on the Memory Machine command line. See Running an Application in Memory Machine.


The new instance is viewable and can be managed on the Memory Machine Dashboard. For example:

  • The instance is shown in the Instance Table when the instance's application name is selected in the Applications Console.
  • The memory consumed by the new instance is accounted for in the Host Overview Console.
  • You can capture snapshots of the instance. (Advanced Edition only.)
