Meet the following requirements to maximize the network performance for your domains:
Hardware requirements. These performance improvements are available only for the SPARC T4, SPARC T5, SPARC M5, or SPARC M6 systems.
System firmware requirements. The SPARC systems must be running system firmware that supports at least the Oracle VM Server for SPARC 3.1 software. See Required Software to Enable the Latest Oracle VM Server for SPARC Features in Oracle VM Server for SPARC 3.1.1 and 3.1 Release Notes .
Oracle Solaris OS requirements. Ensure that the service domain and guest domain run the following Oracle Solaris OS versions:
Service domain. At least the Oracle Solaris 126.96.36.199.0 OS or the Oracle Solaris 10 OS with the 150031-03 patch.
Guest domain. At least the Oracle Solaris 188.8.131.52.0 OS or the Oracle Solaris 10 OS with the 150031-03 patch.
CPU and memory requirements. Ensure that you assign sufficient CPU and memory resources to the service domain and the guest domains.
Service domain. Because the service domain acts as a data proxy for the guest domains, assign at least 2 CPU cores and at least 4 Gbytes of memory to the service domain.
Guest domain. Configure each guest domain to be able to drive at least 10-Gbps performance. Assign at least 2 CPU cores and at least 4 Gbytes of memory to each guest domain.
