What's New in the Solaris 9 9/02 Operating Environment

System Performance Enhancements


Release Date 

Memory Placement Optimization (MPO)

The Solaris dispatcher and the virtual memory subsystem have been enhanced to optimize the time that is required for an application to access memory. This enhancement can automatically improve the performance of many applications. This feature is currently implemented to support specific platforms such as the Sun FireTM 3800-6800, the Sun Fire 12K, and the Sun Fire 15K.


Dynamic Intimate Shared Memory (DISM) Large Page Support

Large page support is now provided for Dynamic Intimate Shared Memory (DISM). This large page support can increase the performance of applications that are capable of dynamically adjusting shared memory sizes. 

For further information on DISM, see "System Performance Enhancements".
