I'm pretty sure you cannot (Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong anyone out there)

If you like I can send you a ps document of memory parameters that you can tune in a Solaris environment.

Why do you want to do this anyway?

No you can't reserve memory like that. And as jonke asked, why would you feel the need to do so?

I have created an e-mail address. Send an e-mail to:

jonke%pasanda@uk.sun.com

And I will return the mail with a document on how memory is used in a Solaris environment.
