Solaris 10 What's New

Memory Placement Optimization (MPO)

This feature is new in the Software Express pilot program and in the Solaris 9 9/02 release. This feature is included in the Solaris 10 3/05 release.

The Solaris dispatcher and the virtual memory subsystem are enhanced to optimize the time that is required for an application to access memory. This enhancement can automatically improve the performance of many applications. This feature is currently implemented to support specific platforms such as the Sun Fire 3800–6800, the Sun Fire 12K, and the Sun Fire 15K.

A technical white paper about Solaris Memory Placement Optimization and Sun Fire Servers is available at the following Web site:
