Determining processes that have been swapped out

Is there a way to do this in Solaris?

For instance, suppose I run the following:

$ swap -l
swapfile             dev  swaplo blocks   free
/dev/md/dsk/d501    85,501     16 16780208 16780208
$ swap -s
total: 3377368k bytes allocated + 519416k reserved = 3896784k used, 11011992k available

I can see 3896784k os swap is being used.

How can I tell which processes, if any, are swapped out?

Is there a way with pstack, truss, or any other way?

Actually that output indicates that nothing has been paged out at all.
