How to Disable Resource Capping

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

  1. Assume the root role.

    For more information, see Using Your Assigned Administrative Rights in Securing Users and Processes in Oracle Solaris 11.4.

  2. Disable the resource capping daemon.

    Use one of the following methods.

    • Turn off resource capping by using the svcadm command.
      $ svcadm disable rcap
    • Disable the resource capping daemon so that it is stopped now and will not be started when the system is booted.
      $ rcapadm -D
    • Disable the resource capping daemon without stopping it now.

      The –n option delays stopping the daemon until the system is booted.

      $ rcapadm -n -D

    Tip  -  Use the rcapadm –D option 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.
