It's a pretty big difference. 5meg for a sparse-root zone, maybe 100meg or more for a whole root. (Depending on what you run that can make a huge difference. If you're running multi-gigabyte java apps then it gets lost in the noise.) I presume that zone clones get you quite a lot of the sharing back. -- -Peter Tribble http://www.petertribble.co.uk/ - http://ptribble.blogspot.com/ _______________________________________________ zones-discuss mailing list email@example.com
