About Resource Pools

    This chapter discusses the following technologies:

  • Resource pools, which are used for partitioning system resources

  • Dynamic resource pools (DRPs), which dynamically adjust each resource pool's resource allocation to meet established system goals

To assign CPUs to processes by using processor affinity, or Multi-CPU binding, through the projects feature, see About Projects and Tasks and Administering Projects and Tasks,

Resource pools and dynamic resource pools are services in the Oracle Solaris service management facility (SMF). Each of these services is enabled separately.

For procedures using this functionality, see Creating and Administering Resource Pools Tasks.
