Deployment Considerations - Solaris

When deploying Coherence on Solaris please be aware of the following:

Solaris 10 (x86 and SPARC)

If running on Solaris 10, please review Sun issues 102712 and 102741 which relate to packet corruption and multicast disconnections. These will most often manifest as either EOFExceptions, "Large gap" warnings while reading packet data, or frequent packet timeouts. It is highly recommend that the patches for both issues be applied when using Coherence on Solaris 10 systems.

Sun Alert 102712:

Possible Data Integrity Issues on Solaris 10 Systems Using the e1000g Driver for the Intel Gigabit Network Interface Card (NIC)

Sun Alert 102741:

IGMP(1) Packets do not Contain IP Router Alert Option When Sent From Solaris 10 Systems With Patch 118822-21 (SPARC) or 118844-21 (x86/x64) or Later Installed
