Solaris file system space

Hi Experts,

I have query regarding output of df command.

$ df -k

Here file system highlighted in red is having the same size as that of root(/) partition. I have below questions regarding same.

(1) Is this file system created by default during installation?
(2) Why the size of this mount point is same as that of root(/) mount point.

Thanks in Advance for your kind help.

It's not really a file system but just a single file overlay mounted on another one. You can just ignore that line.

Thanks for your reply.

So what I understood from your reply is that its not actually a file system but a library file fine tuned for specific hardware.

However, I still wonder is why it is mounted if its single file...

Are there any advantages of mounting it?
