The Oracle Solaris OS is designed to allocate 32 interrupt vectors at priority level six. Because each network device is assigned two interrupts, if the system contains more than 16 network devices, the available interrupts at priority level 6 will be exhausted, leaving some devices non functional.
Note - The Oracle Solaris OS is currently limited to 31 interrupts at priority level six, meaning that it can support only 15 network devices on level six. This will be fixed in a future patch or release.
