Second, get some free monitoring utilities either by ftp from
opcom.sun.ca:/pub/binaries/se2.4 or via the WWW from
Note: these run only under Solaris 2.x.
Follow the directions to install. Then, do something like:
/opt/RICHPse/bin/se /opt/RICHPse/examples/ruletool.se &
and you will see what the bottleneck is on your machine. It said I
had RAM and disk problems; to alleviate it, we added swap to another,
faster, internal disk, and I removed a few processes like extra
perfmeters and such. These two simple changes made a noticable
improvement on my machine.
Furthermore, others posters said that the Solaris 2.5 beta they were
running was noticably faster for interactive use, so I have that to
look forward to.
