The following illustration shows a simple combination of Solaris Resource Manager and processor sets. In this example, processor sets and Solaris Resource Manager CPU shares are mixed.
User 1 has 25 Solaris Resource Manager shares and is restricted to processor set A (1 CPU). User 2 has 75 Solaris Resource Manager shares and is restricted to processor set B (1 CPU).
In this example, user 2 will consume its entire processor set (50 percent of the system). Because user 2 is only using 50 percent (rather than its allocated 75 percent), user 1 is able to use the remaining 50 percent. In summary, each user will be granted 50 percent of the system.
