Resource usage on Solaris

How can I find the resource usage in Solaris. In windows, if I go to Task Manager, I can find the CPU and memory being used. From there I can make out if CPU and memory is overloaded and accordingly order more. Can someone please let me know how can I do the same for Solaris?

Thank you

"top"

Use "man top" for more information.

"vmstat" and "iostat" are useful as well.

Consult the manpages!

prstat -t will show you both CPU and memory.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Thanks a lot. It shows memory usage in %. Is the percentage calculated based on total resources available on the physical server or is it based on the resources allocated to the zone (in case it is possible to allocate resources to the zone.)

Also, is there a guide which enables me to understand meaning of all the columns like SWAP, RSS etc.
