How to Remove a Pools Configuration

To remove the current active configuration and return all associated resources, such as processor sets, to their default status, use the –x option for "remove configuration".

  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. Remove the current active configuration.
    $ pooladm -x

    The –x option to pooladm removes all user-defined elements from the dynamic configuration. All resources revert to their default states, and all pool bindings are replaced with a binding to the default pool.

Mixing Scheduling Classes Within a Processor Set

You can safely mix processes in the TS and IA classes in the same processor set. Mixing other scheduling classes within one processor set can lead to unpredictable results. If the use of pooladm –x results in mixed scheduling classes within one processor set, use the priocntl command to move running processes into a different scheduling class. See How to Manually Move Processes From the TS Class Into the FSS Class. Also see the priocntl(1) man page.
