default is 10% - you can do the math (used + avail) typically don't add up to
total - thats' the amount set aside for minfree - take a look at man pages
for tunefs - also check and see what is set in your /etc/system

I think you're thinking about Filesystem values.

They're kernel parameters.  If you're running a 32 bit kernel, just run
adb and print them out..

# adb -k
physmem f940
minfree/D                <-type this
minfree:
minfree:        247
desfree/D                <-and this....
desfree:
desfree:        495

If you're running a 64 bit kernel, then you should use /E instead of /D.

I'm guessing that these values are in pages rather than K or bytes.

1. how can we check kernel parameters lotsfree, desfree and minfree

Hi,

We want to inspect the three kernel parameters LOTSFREE, DESFREE en MINFREE.

We used a default Solaris installation so there are no entries in the
/etc/system

How can we view lotsfree, desfree and minfree. We tried memtool, ps, vmstat
and so on.

Frank,
