> 1. Do you use "set pool=" anymore, now that the dedicated-cpu feature exists?
Until Oracle develops a more rational licensing scheme you should expect this feature to be in use. I may have many Oracle instances, each in a separate zone, using the same pool. The sampling on this discussion list may not give you a good idea of its use. Might pose this question on your blog as well ? That said, this requires manual configuration of the pool. I don't think it would be asking too much for customers using this feature to also set up a boot time service (SMF or RC) to disable interrupts on all CPUs in the pool. If needed (may not always be needed). > 2. Is it sufficient to simply disable interrupts on a zone's pset? I like your idea of turning off interrupts for dynamic resource pools under zoneadm/rcapd control, and leaving it a configurable item. I would also think that when CPUs are removed from the pool that interrupts should be turned back on unless given to a another pool with interrupts=disabled. I would hate for several zone reboots to turn off interrupts to all CPUs :-( Bob _______________________________________________ zones-discuss mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org
