Features for Improving Network Performance

Configuring the network interface connects your systems to the network. However, other features in Oracle Solaris 11 improve the network's overall performance. Managing network performance refers to the use of these features and technologies to fine tune the way your systems process network traffic. Systems that are configured with these technologies can manage network traffic better, which contributes to the improvement of the network's total performance. These features address different areas of network operations. However, they might provide common benefits, such as the following:

This book describes the features that improve how the system hosts and processes network traffic. Consider the following examples:

Use of the different technologies described in this book depends on specific circumstances. Also, some hardware configurations might require you to use a specific type of feature. For example, if your system has multiple interfaces that are configured to belong to the same subnet, then you must use the IP multipathing (IPMP) technology. Thus, you do not need to complete all the configuration procedures in this book. Instead, select and deploy the technologies that address your network requirements.

Refer also to the Oracle Solaris 11.1 documentation library for other network-related system configurations that contribute to the improvement of network. For example, using virtual networks, zones, and resource management enables you to deploy multiple networks-in-a-box performance while maximizing the use of available network resources. See Using Virtual Networks in Oracle Solaris 11.1 and Oracle Solaris 11.1 Administration: Oracle Solaris Zones, Oracle Solaris 10 Zones, and Resource Management for details.
