It is important to note that in a native Solaris install, /tmp is a tmpfs file system that uses swap, and so one can affect the other.

If you think that you are having problems running out of swap or tmp you may have one of those few cases where it is a good idea to separate the two.

It is easy to do, but requires an available disk or partition.

Good Luck !
