About Physical Memory Control Using the Resource Capping Daemon

The resource capping daemon rcapd enables you to regulate physical memory consumption by processes running in projects that have resource caps defined. If you are running zones on your system, you can use rcapd from the global zone to regulate physical memory consumption in non-global zones. See Physical Memory Control and the capped-memory Resource in Introduction to Oracle Solaris Zones .

The following topics are covered in this chapter.

For procedures using the rcapd utility, see Chapter 11, Administering the Resource Capping Daemon Tasks.
