There are many caveats about how reliable this is from the global zone. - If you have lots of zones, only the ones that consume the most resources will be listed. - If a zone is running a workload that has lots of short-lived processes (software builds, print server, job scheduler, etc.) the load associated with those short-lived processes will be lost. This could make a zone that is using 100% of the CPU look nearly idle. > Also If I use prtsat in the following fashion, I can sort the output by rss: > > # prstat -s rss > > Would this give me the correct result in a zone as well? It will be accurate, subject to the limitation that it will only show the processes in that zone. -- Mike Gerdts http://mgerdts.blogspot.com/ _______________________________________________ zones-discuss mailing list email@example.com
