Are there any tools for Solaris (7 - x86) to show what processes are
using how much memory? I know top, but I want something more
comprehensive. Sometimes swap gets really used up, but I can't figure
out what's using all the memory.
Then look at the big ones. Of course virtual size can be misleading.
If you have 12 oracle processes all taking up 2GB, that's probably 12
oracle processes *sharing* a large chunk of memory.
If you have a suspect, you can use 'pmap -x pid' to get a breakdown on
shared versus private memory.

We are looking for a tool that could do the memory usage monitoring on both
system and individual process levels. We know sar, vmstat, sadc, etc.. will give
us system level while lots of others, like Sentinel, will do the process level,
and ipcs can tell us shared memory...., but is there a product can do all this?
Or its just we're asking too much?
Any pointers are highly appreciated!!
