Use the extended accounting facility to determine the resource consumption of workloads on your system. After the resource consumption has been determined, use the resource control facility to place bounds on resource usage. Bounds that are placed on resources prevent workloads from over-consuming resources.
For an overview of resource controls and example commands for administering resource controls, see Chapter 6, Resource Controls (Overview), in Oracle Solaris Administration: Oracle Solaris Zones, Oracle Solaris 10 Zones, and Resource Management and Chapter 7, Administering Resource Controls (Tasks), in Oracle Solaris Administration: Oracle Solaris Zones, Oracle Solaris 10 Zones, and Resource Management.
The resource control facility adds the following benefits.
Resource controls can be adjusted while the system is running.
Containment level granularity
Resource controls are arranged in a containment level of zone, project, task, or process. The containment level simplifies the configuration and aligns the collected values closer to the particular zone, project, task, or process.
