Solaris 2.5.1 - 64 bit Capabilities

Solaris 2.5.1 - 64 bit Capabilities

Post by Prakash Ananthapu » Thu, 08 May 1997 04:00:00



Hi,

What effect  does the 2.5.1 Solaris have on Block device drivers (which
previously ran on 2.4..)?.. Does the 64-bit kernel effect any driver
changes..??

Thanx

1. HALstation (64-bit processor running 64-bit Solaris) as webserver

 Hi. We are considering the use of a HALstation 300 as a web server. The
machine has 256Mb RAM and a SPARC64 processor. This is a 64-bit
implementation of the SPARC-V9. It uses a 64-bit version of the Solaris
2.4 O.S. and runs existing Solaris applications without modification.  It
supposely has the best memory throughput of any single processor machine.
The machine was made to do number crunching but how will it benefit a web
and mail server? Maybe a 64-bit solution is overkill. I welcome your
comments.
Thanks
Francisco Aguirre

2. Linux Networking Password?

3. 64-bit Solaris 7: wasn't Solaris 2.6 also 32-bit?

4. I want Linux, but partitioning is becoming a pain...

5. 64 bit Unix (esp. 64 bit IO)

6. Knode and yEnc

7. host mastered 64 bit wide transfers to 64 bit PCI slot?

8. apache

9. performance of runing 32/64 bit program in 64 bit kernel.

10. Is 64-bit Linux "true" 64 bit thru-and-thru??

11. IBM announces 64-bit mainframes and 64-bit Linux for S/390

12. 32 bit or 64 bit Solaris 8

13. changing Solaris 7 from 32 bit to 64 bit
