Managing System Resources (Overview)

This chapter provides a brief description of the system resource management features that are available in the Solaris Operating System and a road map to help you manage system resources.

Using these features, you can display general system information, monitor disk space, set disk quotas and use accounting programs. You can also schedule the cron and at commands to automatically run routine commands.

This section does not cover information on Solaris resource management that enables you to allocate, monitor, and control system resources in a flexible way.

For information on the procedures that are associated with managing system resources without Solaris resource management, see Managing System Resources (Road Map).

For information on managing system resources with Solaris resource management, see Chapter 1, Introduction to Solaris Resource Management, in System Administration Guide: Virtualization Using the Solaris Operating System.
