are you sure the app doesnt have some other data loaded into memory before
running the query on the linux box?
you can use memory_get_usage() right before executing the query on the linux
box to determine if thats the case.
for example suppose the query takes .5M of memory, when you run it on the
solaris box only 4M of memory is currently in use and when you run it on the
linux box 31.7M of memory is in use.
another easy way to make the determination is to do as ashley suggested and
write a script which does nothing other than execute the query.
