comment How much swap do you allocate for your Solaris server?
My main Solaris development system has 16GB of RAM, 16GB of swap, and I wish I had more of both-- but then I'm dealing with problem sets that are best categorized as 'freakishly huge'. Swap space on Solaris should be configured based on expected usage of the machine.
