Limits specified through the prctl command are not persistent. The limits are only in effect until the system is rebooted. To set shares in a zone permanently, see How to Configure the Zone and How to Set zone.cpu-shares in the Global Zone.
The global zone is given one share by default. You can use this procedure to change the default allocation. Note that you must reset shares allocated through the prctl command whenever you reboot the system.
You must be the global administrator in the global zone to perform this procedure.
To create the role and assign the role to a user, see Using the Solaris Management Tools With RBAC (Task Map) in System Administration Guide: Basic Administration.
# prctl -n zone.cpu-shares -v 2 -r -i zone global
# prctl -n zone.cpu-shares -i zone global
For more information on the prctl utility, see the prctl(1) man page.
This procedure can be used for any zone, not just the global zone.
To create the role and assign the role to a user, see Using the Solaris Management Tools With RBAC (Task Map) in System Administration Guide: Basic Administration
# prctl -n zone.cpu-shares -r -v value -i zone zonename
idtype is either the zonename or the zoneid. value is the new value.
