Interesting.  In the problem state the system is usually quite responsive, eg. 
not memory trashing.  Under Linux which I'm more 
familiar with the 'used memory' = 'total memory - 'free memory', refers to 
physical memory being used for data caching by 
the kernel which is still available for processes to allocate as needed 
together with memory allocated to processes, as opposed to 
only physical memory already allocated and therefore really 'used'.  Does this 
mean something different under Solaris ?
