You might prefer to use "prstat", which has several features you won't find with top (and reciprocally ...).

The physical memory used by the processes is shown in the RSS column.

You can see how much ram is used by all processes by using the "prstat -a" option.

You can display how much free RAM is available by looking at the vmstat "free" column.

By the way, while top is not part of Solaris, you can still download it from Solaris freeware repositories like sunfreeware.com or blastwave.org.

This will give you the sum of physical memory used by the userland processes, not the overall sum of physical memory used. The kernel and other entities make use of RAM too.
If you want a detailed view of RAM usage, run this command:

Code:
echo "::memstat" | mdb -k

From the vmstat manual page:


Code:
               swap    available swap space (Kbytes)

               free    size of the free list (Kbytes)
