This makes all sorts of things work without you requiring the privilege to read kernel memory (think things like prstat/top and some debuggers).
So the size you are seeing is a representation of the process (address space and attributes). It is taking up no disk space so compression would not be a valid action to take. See the man page on proc(4) for more information. Bob _______________________________________________ zones-discuss mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org
