On my HP-585, 4xOpteron, 16G RAM, Gentoo Linux (2.6.9):

$ ipcs -u i

------ Shared Memory Status --------
segments allocated 1
pages allocated 34866

Swap performance: 0 attempts     0 successes

------ Semaphore Status --------
used arrays = 7
allocated semaphores = 119

------ Messages: Status --------
allocated queues = 0

used space = 0 bytes
