Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

My system is having 28 GB of physical memory, but the free memory showing is only 880 Mb. CPU status is showing as 98% idle, but then also the system is running slow. I assume it is most probably because of filled cache memory. Need help to identify n clear cache memory in Solaris 10.
output of swap -s: you have almost 7 GB swap space and only a half gig is available. Actually it looks like it is not too much...
prstat -Z: oracle uses your memory
you can use man prstat or man vmstat about description
The lines showing code are displayed in a more readable way, and especially with a fixed width font.
Just edit (by clicking the Edit button at the bottom) your previous postings where you posted commands and their output, select them with your mouse and click on the hash (#) button. That will add the code tags I'm talking about around the selected text. Click "Preview Post" to check if the result is correct and click "Submit Reply" if it is.
I don't have the access to global zone, so cant check that.
Then there is not much you can do to investigate or fully understand what is going on on your system.
The global zone is controlling your zone resources.
as a minimal solution you can use the command swap and evaluate the output. You cannot handle swap directly, but you can try to kill apps. Probably you only need to add more swap space, or you need to check why do you have so many oracle processes?
How do you know I am working in a local zone, and not on global zone?
I already wrote the fact /dev/ksyms was missing was a good clue.
This was confirmed by your "prstat -Z" output where only your zone named catom-gmcapds51 appears. When on the global zone, "prstat -Z" shows a summary for the global zone which is missing in your case.
Again, please edit your previous postings and add the code tags where they should be.
And by the way, when quoting other people, use "quote" tags, not "code" ones.
