How to Create them in Solaris 11

In his blog on Solaris 10 Branded Zones Brian Leonard provides a solution to the problem of creating a Solaris 10 Zone in Solaris 11, which requires an existing Solaris 10 environment -- either a Solaris 10 instance or a Solaris 10 zone. Leonard's 12-step solution (with all the necessary code) will enable readers to run a Solaris 10 zone in Solaris 11, with the attendant benefit of having network virtualization and zonestat available.

28 Dec 2010 Zonestat: New Feature in Oracle Solaris 11 Express: Part 2 [23772]
CPU Resource Management Made Easier

As promised in Part 1, "Zonestat in Solaris 11 Express," Jeff Victor returns with Part 2 to complete his description of the new feature. He shows how Zonestat can help users monitor instances of CPU contention and identify which zones, if any, are using more compute resources than expected. He adds that, in addition to providing intelligence on short-term resource usage, Zonestat can provide summary reports of peak or average usage over longer periods. He shows readers how to specify the interval at which Zonestat gathers data by setting the zones-monitoring:default service property config/sample_interval.
