My question deals specifically with a way to tell how much memory is being used by an Oracle instance on a UNIX (Solaris) server.
For example (I'm gonna really oversimplify this...), if I see that there's 8GB of RAM in use, is there a "simple" method (either through TOAD or some UNIX tool) to identify what portion of that memory is being used by a particular Oracle instance?
Through contact with an Oracle instructor and Sun support site searches, I was able to find "pmap" command usage to obtain the "anon" memory for Oracle processes, but hopefully someone will have an alternate solution.
I do have the Sun Management Center at my disposal (if that helps), and I'm open to any solution, even bribing the server with burgers and beer. Thanks everyone!
