About Resources in Zones

    Resources that can be controlled in a zone include the following:

  • Resource pools or assigned CPUs, which are used for partitioning system resources.

  • Resource controls, which provide a mechanism for the constraint of system resources.

  • Scheduling class, which enables you to control the allocation of available CPU resources among zones, based on their importance. This importance is expressed by the number of shares of CPU resources that you assign to each zone.
