With this clarification on AIX page sizes:

Small/default = 4K
Medium = 64K
Large = 16M
Huge = 16G

...AMM can be used with large pages, as per MOS 1507249.1:

"AMM can be used with pinned 16 MB pages, provided the formula for
calculating the number of large pages (above) is modified to number of large
pages=memory_max_target+1."

I'm researching when to use 16M pages, as I'm looking towards a new 200+GB
SGA...
