Solaris 10 What's New

Enhancements to pfiles Tool

This feature is new in the Solaris Express 6/04 release.

The /proc file system has been enhanced to include file name information in the /proc/<pid>/path directory. This information is used by pfiles(1) to display file names for each file in the process. This enhancement creates an entirely new form of observability that provides new insight into process behavior. This new observability benefits both administrators and developers.
