Sun Cluster Concepts Guide for Solaris OS

Setting Per-Process Virtual Memory Limits

Set the process.max-address-space control to limit virtual memory on a per-process basis. See the rctladm(1M) man page for information about setting the process.max-address-space value.

When you use management controls with Sun Cluster software, configure memory limits appropriately to prevent unnecessary failover of applications and a “ping-pong” effect of applications. In general, observe the following guidelines.
