Sparc Solaris 8 crash dump

My sparc solaris 8 server crashed/rebooted yesterday and I have the vmcore files. I have some initial output from SCAT and ACT. I have not included all but any info would be helpful. I can supply more output if necessary.

Thanks you.

Can I have any information about this ACT and SCAT output. It would be greatly appreciated.

open a call at the sun/oracle support line and let an engineer have a look at the dump. i assume this is a production machine...?!

Prior to the crash, any warnings or errors seen in the /var/adm/messages files?
Can attach for us to see if there are hints on the cause of panic, MAYBE it might help
