Solaris Resource Manager 1.3 System Administration Guide

Web Hosting

In the past, ISPs have had to assign dedicated machines to each client, at significant cost and complexity. With Solaris Resource Manager, an ISP can confidently host many (perhaps thousands) of web servers on a single machine. Solaris Resource Manager allows administrators to control the resource consumption associated with each web site, protecting each from the potential excesses of the others. It also prevents a faulty common gateway interface (CGI) script from exhausting CPU resources, or a user application from leaking all available virtual memory.
