Introduction to Dynamic Resource Pools
Dynamic resource pools provide a mechanism for dynamically adjusting each pool's resource allocation
in response to system events and application load changes. DRPs simplify and reduce
the number of decisions required from an administrator. Adjustments are automatically made to
preserve the system performance goals specified by an administrator. The changes made to
the configuration are logged. These features are primarily enacted through the resource controller
poold, a system daemon that should always be active when dynamic resource allocation
is required. Periodically, poold examines the load on the system and determines whether
intervention is required to enable the system to maintain optimal performance with respect
to resource consumption. The poold configuration is held in the libpool configuration.
For more information on poold, see the poold(1M) man page.
