Chapter 5. Solaris Memory Architecture
The virtual memory system can be considered the core of a Solaris system, and the implementation of Solaris virtual memory affects just about every other subsystem in the operating system. In this chapter, we'll take a look at some of the memory management basics and then step into a more detailed analysis of how Solaris implements virtual memory management. Subsequent chapters in Part Two discuss kernel memory management, and that can be used to monitor and manage virtual memory.
