So far, no luck on that. I've been speaking with a bunch of Oracle guru's
and they can't figure it out, yet...
What a major pain that Oracle has introduced....

When I did testing on Nevada (not S10) vmstat gave results that were in line
with the resource controls. I did notice that df would report an improperly
large size for /tmp, which is another problem. Your results suggest that
prtconf or the underlying system calls also need to be updated to reflect
memory resource controls.
I would guess that any of the parameters that Oracle is going to set based
upon RAM size can be hand-tuned after the installation.
