Transferring Resources

Use the transfer subcommand argument to the -c option of poolcfg with the -d option to transfer resources in the kernel. The -d option specifies that the command operate directly on the kernel and not take input from a file.

The following procedure moves two CPUs from processor set pset1 to processor set pset2 in the kernel.

How to Move CPUs Between Processor Sets

  1. Become superuser, or assume a role that includes the Process Management profile.

    The System Administrator role includes the Process Management profile. For more information about roles, see Using the Solaris Management Tools With RBAC (Task Map) in System Administration Guide: Basic Administration.

  2. Move two CPUs from pset1 to pset2.

    The from and to subclauses can be used in any order. Only one to and from subclause is supported per command.

    # poolcfg -dc 'transfer 2 from pset pset1 to pset2'

Example 13-3 Alternative Method to Move CPUs Between Procesor Sets

If specific known IDs of a resource type are to be transferred, an alternative syntax is provided. For example, the following command assigns two CPUs with IDs 0 and 2 to the pset_large processor set:

# poolcfg -dc "transfer to pset pset_large (cpu 0; cpu 2)"

If a transfer fails because there are not enough resources to match the request or because the specified IDs cannot be located, the system displays an error message.
