Hello,
  We are having a E450 with Solaris 2.7 Installed. We are running Oracle 8i 4 to 5 Instances. It is a development Server. Server RAM is 1.5 GB. and Swap Space is 2GB.
  The SGA Size of each Database instance is around 100M.
When Databases are started up and after some time all the memory is consumed. If a client takes a connection thru SQL it takes 100+ MB of RAM.
   Can any body give me solution.
Regards
Avadhani

There is a script to calculate the Oracle memory usage published in the recent Oracle Magazine (May issue, Page 26). Check it out to see if that helps.  

Also to reduce the memory usage, there are serveral
main places to check: for example, are you running JAVA applications? if NOT, you may reduce the java pool to a small size; SORT_AREA_SIZE is the main parameter to effect
the process memory usage and you may adjust to a small
value.

If you'd like to know more about Solaris memory,
take a look at this article and its associated links:
