Is there a Solaris equivalent to AIX's spmon command?  I'm trying to figure out what areas of virtual memory certain processes on the system are using.  ps will give me a location in physical memory and the size, but I don't believe that every process in memory uses a contiguous area of memory.  vmstat will only give me an overall look at memory usage, not a process by process look.

Try the tools in /usr/proc/bin.  In particular, the command "pmap" looks like it'll do what you want.  For example:

dhm@eagleone[24]$ /usr/proc/bin/pmap $$
