How can I track memory utilisation on a Solaris10 server
Posted on 2008-10-09
I have a Solaris10 server running two non-global zones. OVPA is running on the global zone and tells me that the memory utilisation is climbing day on day. However when I do a 'ps -elfZ' over a period of time the SZ column does not show the same increase. In fact day on day it is broadly the same. The increase may well be the buffer cache as 'ps' will not be counting this, so how might I be able to prove this.
What will happen when memory utilisation (according to OVPA) reaches 100%.
Oracle is running on one of the zones.
