Operating Systems Solaris Where is my memory? How to fix it ? Post 303037759 by ron323232 on Tuesday 13th of August 2019 03:48:55 AM
Thanks for document. This is really good one and gave valid information, also about benefits of 'user_reserve_hint_pct' over 'zfs_arc_max'.

However, I was getting some confused, what should I set initially as per my server's load and memory utilization. Because there are no previous/desired zfs_arc_max, so I can't user formula mentioned in this document. Should I start with 60 ? These are production servers, so a little of performance issue will raise some noises.

Tomorrow morning, I will request report from monitoring team, if they can give and that should help me to understand the trend.
