Resource Pools Used in Zones

As an alternative to associating a zone with a configured resource pool on your system, you can use the zonecfg command to create a temporary pool that is in effect while the zone is running. See Creating and Using Oracle Solaris Zones for more information.

On a system that has zones enabled, a non-global zone can be associated with one resource pool, although the pool need not be exclusively assigned to a particular zone. Moreover, you cannot bind individual processes in non-global zones to a different pool by using the poolbind command from the global zone. To associate a non-global zone with a pool, see Creating and Using Oracle Solaris Zones.

Note that if you set a scheduling class for a pool and you associate a non-global zone with that pool, the zone uses that scheduling class by default.

If you are using dynamic resource pools, the scope of an executing instance of the poold daemon is limited to the global zone.

The poolstat utility when run in a non-global zone displays only information about the pool associated with the zone. The pooladm command when run without arguments in a non-global zone displays only information about the pool associated with the zone.

For information about resource pool commands, see Commands Used With the Resource Pools Facility.
