Thats how I came to the conclusion with the current implementation of
getting load averages coming from processor sets rather than the load
running within a zone prohibits the sole use of FSS to consolidate
sendmail servers. The only feasible solution is to use pools/psrsets
and make sure each zone is allocated a proper amount of CPU. That way
its load average algorithm will continue to work.
Although it is not integrated yet, cpu-caps should be available soon.
One idea might be to use a combination of FSS and cpu-caps to really
over-provision a system running lots of consolidated sendmail servers
since the cpu-cap would ensure that any specific zone did not use
too much of the system even though cycles were available. FSS would
ensure that each zone got its share if all of the zones got busy.
