I reproduced the problem on global zone. Thanks!!

It would be useful to know if the memory leak is in locked memory or
not. What isthe output of the following command, in both cases (app in
GZ, app in a zone):

GZ# pmap -x <pid>

I'm struggling with the following problem and I have no idea how to
solve it.
I'm testing an application which is running fine on a global zone,but
memory leaking when installed on a local zone.

The local zone has its whole root and a very simple, basic configuration:
bash-3.00# zonecfg -z mdmMDMzone
zonecfg:mdmMDMzone> info
zonename: mdmMDMzone
zonepath: /mdmMDMzone
brand: native
autoboot: true
limitpriv: default,dtrace_proc,dtrace_user,proc_priocntl,proc_lock_memory
scheduling-class: FSS
ip-type: shared
        physical: e1000g0
        defrouter not specified

One of the application processes, when started on global zone, has an
rss of about 5 GB ( prstat -s rss ) and it keeps this size to the end of
the test. If I stop the application on global zone and I start it on
local zone, the same process starts with the normal size ( 5gb on prstat
-s rss ) but is growing  during the test ( I saw it 25GB on a server
with 32 gb RAM ) until is failing. I don't understand why is this
behavior and if the application has a memory leak, why I don't see it on
global zone.

Any help is more than welcome!!!
