I am a Solaris ludite - I am a Perl web programmer / Linux person at
I have been asked to find out "Why are website is slow?"
As such I am running a few scripts to dump bits of data into files to
profile number of process / load / users / and vmstat.
My question is thus - I want to know how much memory is "free", how much
is used as cache and how much is used as buffers etc - Does Solaris have
the free commmand ala Linux style command ?
The reason being is that I want to see how much "disk cache" the machine
is using (being a web server I would want this to be high).
My gut feeling is that the machine is lightly swapping and not building
a large disk cache, and hence the site is not optimised from this view.
It must be possible to adjust these levels - to manually increase the
buffer / cache.
Before I recomend a new machine or another gig of RAM I want to have
data to backup my arguments.
Any help greatly appreciated.
