System Administration Guide: Oracle Solaris Containers-Resource Management and Oracle Solaris Zones

ProcedureHow to Remove a Pools Configuration

To remove the current active configuration and return all associated resources, such as processor sets, to their default status, use the -x option for “remove configuration.”

  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. Remove the current active configuration.

    # pooladm -x

    The -x option to pooladm removes all user-defined elements from the dynamic configuration. All resources revert to their default states, and all pool bindings are replaced with a binding to the default pool.

Mixing Scheduling Classes Within a Processor Set

You can safely mix processes in the TS and IA classes in the same processor set. Mixing other scheduling classes within one processor set can lead to unpredictable results. If the use of pooladm -x results in mixed scheduling classes within one processor set, use the priocntl command to move running processes into a different scheduling class. See How to Manually Move Processes From the TS Class Into the FSS Class. Also see the priocntl(1) man page.
