Solaris Troubleshooting and Performance Tuning

These pages have been updated for Solaris 10. While some information is included for versions of Solaris back to 2.5.1 (when these pages were first written), some information for older versions of Solaris has been discarded to avoid confusion. The focus of these pages is on Solaris 8-10.

The purpose of these pages is to provide a summary of tools and techniques for troubleshooting problems on the Solaris platform.

The content on these pages is maintained by Scott Cromar (and used with permission.) The information is also collected in Scott's book, The Solaris Troubleshooting Handbook. More information can be found, and comments on the contents of this page may be logged, at The Solaris Troubleshooting Blog. Thank you to the people who have pointed out erroneous or poorly presented information.
