Toggle Solaris memory allocator#
This selection is will apply special configuration for older eDirectory versions (< 220.127.116.11) to improve performance and stability. This option must be run on all Solaris 9 servers just to make eDirectory load and function.
The option should be executed again anytime a patch is installed on the server (some patches overwrite these settings).
The latest information from Novell recommends that Solaris 9 eDirectory servers be configured to use the LIBUMEM memory allocator.
Available in build versions >= 20050816.
The toggle now detects the required OS patches and prompts to enable LIBUMEM. An example run is shown below.
