Solaris Common Messages and Troubleshooting Guide


Reinstall or reconfigure the system to have more swap space. A general rule is that swap space should be two to three times as large as physical memory. Alternatively, use mkfile(1M) and swap(1M) to add more swap area. This example shows how to add 16 Mbytes of virtual memory in the /usr/swap file (any file system with enough free space would work):

# mkfile 16m /usr/swap
# swap -a /usr/swap
To make this reconfiguration automatic at boot time, add the following line to the /etc/vfstab file:

/usr/swap   -   -   swap   -   no   -
