Assuming, since you didn't bother to say, that you're dealing with Sun hardware.

Agreed with  PsiCop, SunSolve is the first place to go:
            http://sunsolve.sun.com/pub-cgi/show.pl?target=home
You need to have a SunSolve login account to access to the Tech docs.

Or
the Sun documentations site (Free Software/Hardware docs):
http://docs.sun.com/

EE:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Operating_Systems/Solaris/

We have some experienced experts here, eg, PsiCop is one of them.

The data sources you are seeking are built around solving specific problems. We can point you to general resources, like SunSolve, but there is no one listing of all problems.

Obviously searching this site (http://www.experts-exchange.com/Operating_Systems/Solaris/) for keywords, like disk, CPU, cache, qfe, array, serial port etc and seeing which ones occur the most would give you some simple metrics.
In my experience, the commonest (i've just had a look at my hardware change log)
1. Failed hard disks
2. Disk arrays, especially device drivers for new arrays
3. CPU failing
4. echace (especially E250s)
5. Drivers for anything new
6. Motherboards
Had a couple of CD / DVD drives and have been dead lucky with network cards, don't know how representative my systems are....
