How to Set FSS Shares in the Global Zone Using the prctl Command

The global zone is given one share by default. You can use this procedure to change the default allocation. Note that you must reset shares allocated through the prctl command whenever you reboot the system.

  1. Assume the root role.

    For more information, see Using Your Assigned Administrative Rights in Securing Users and Processes in Oracle Solaris 11.3.

  2. Use the prctl utility to assign two shares to the global zone:
    # prctl -n zone.cpu-shares -v 2 -r -i zone global
  3. (Optional) To verify the number of shares assigned to the global zone, type:
    # prctl -n zone.cpu-shares -i zone global
