How to Disable Resource Capping

There are three ways to disable resource capping on your system.

  1. Become root or assume an equivalent role.
  2. Disable the resource capping daemon in one of the following ways:
    • Turn off resource capping using the svcadm command.
      # svcadm disable rcap
    • To disable the resource capping daemon so that it will be stopped now and not be started when the system is booted, type:
      # rcapadm -D
    • To disable the resource capping daemon without stopping it, also specify the –n option:
      # rcapadm -n -D

    Tip  -  Use rcapadm –D to safely disable rcapd. If the daemon is killed (see the kill (1) man page), processes might be left in a stopped state and need to be manually restarted. To resume a process running, use the prun command. See the prun (1) man page for more information.
