MemTool was developed to provide a more in-depth look at where memory has been allocated on a Solaris system. Using these tools, we can find out where every page of memory is, and in what proportions. MemTool is available as a downloadable, unsupported package from Sun Engineering. Note that these tools are not supported by the normal Sun support channels. The latest version of MemTool can be found at http://www.solarisinternals.com.
