Values within Solaris Resource Manager are represented in one of three types of units:
The scaled unit is the default. It's an easily readable format used to display and enter values. Scaled units help users avoid making entry errors by reducing the number of digits that need to be entered.
The raw unit is the basic unit in which a value is represented. For example, the raw units for virtual memory usage are bytes, and the raw units for virtual memory accrual are byte-seconds. These are mainly employed when billing for usage, when exact quantities are required.
The internal unit is used by Solaris Resource Manager to store memory attributes in machine-dependent units rather than in bytes.
