FSS CPU shares for a zone are hierarchical. The shares for the global and non-global zones are set by the global administrator through the zone-wide resource control zone.cpu-shares. The project.cpu-shares resource control can then be defined for each project within that zone to further subdivide the shares set through the zone-wide control.
To assign zone shares by using the zonecfg command, see How to Set zone.cpu-shares in the Global Zone. For more information on project.cpu-shares, see Available Resource Controls. Also see Using the Fair Share Scheduler on a Solaris System With Zones Installed for example procedures that show how to set shares on a temporary basis.
