About Controlling Physical Memory With the Resource Capping Daemon (rcapd)

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 the rcapd daemon from the global zone to regulate physical memory consumption in non-global zones. See Capped Memory and Physical Memory Control in Oracle Solaris Zones Configuration Resources.

The following topics are covered in this chapter.

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