The Oracle Solaris Remote Lab allows independent software vendors (ISVs) to test and qualify their applications in a self service Solaris cloud.

ISVs who are Oracle Partner Network Gold members with a specialization in the Solaris knowledge zone can apply for free access in OPN.

The lab offers the following features to it's users:

  • Lifetime of project: 45 days (extensions granted on demand) 
  • Up to 5 virtual machines in a private network 
  • Virtual Machine technology: Solaris zones 
  • Resources per VM
    • processor support: SPARC or x86 
    • OS version: OracleSolaris 11.0
    • 4GB physical memory 
    • 4GB swap space 
    • 10GB local filesystem storage 
    • 10GB network filesystem (NFS) mounted on all virtual machines
  • Networking configuration
    • The only external network routes are to Partner's other Virtual Machines 
    • No network routing to the Internet 
    • The SMB (CIFS) sharing protocol is not available between Virtual Machines 
  • Device Access 
    • Applications that assume the existence of /devices will not run in a Virtual Machine 
    • Applications that use eeprom to modify SPARC eeprom setting will not run in a Virtual Machine
  • The following utilities do not work properly in Virtual Machines: 
    • add_drv, disks, prtconf, prtdiag, rem_dev
  • Access technology: Secure Global Desktop, file up and download
  • root access within VM
  • Available VM templates (both processor architectures)
    • Oracle Database 11g Release 2 (11.2.0.3) for Solaris with Oracle Enterprise Manager 11g
    • Weblogic 12c

Solaris Performance Primer: Introduction

This blog entry is based on an ISV-Engineering performance code camp for software partners. We are publishing the 30 most important freely available tools and commands to figure why a system isn't scaling in this sequence of blog entries. Be aware: this is more a basic cookbook in a "minute man" style which hopefully helps to solve 80% of the common problems in 10 minutes.The Solaris Performance Primer moved to a new location.

Sun Application Tuning Seminar und Code Camp Ausblick

Verehrte Leserinnen und Lesen,

Die Universität Ulm gibt im Januar wieder ihren berühmten 3 tägigen Tuning Workshop vom achten bis zum zehnten Januar.

Details zu Inhalt und Anmeldung finden Sie unter der Sun Ankündigungsseite.

Im Februar (12-14) werden wir dann wieder ein Entwicklercodecamp zum Thema "Tomcat zu Glassfish" Migration anbieten. Hier möchten wir in Düsseldorf, Hamburg und München mit ihnen alle offenen Fragen zu Glassfish diskutieren.

Also wärmen Sie schon mal Ihren Laptop vor. Das VMware Image wird auf Ihrem Laptop etwa 10GB Plattenplatz benötigen. Dafür erhalten Sie auch einen gut abgestimmten Entwicklerarbeitsplatz.

Frohe Weihnachten und eine guten Rutsch ins neue Jahr.

- Thomas Bastian, Mithun Sridharan und Stefan Schneider

Update: Solaris Performance ToolsCD 3.0 available online

I got quite some feedback on the performance tool CD. I have been able to make the CD available online for direct download. Allow me to describe it one more time in length as I did in my blog before:


What is it about?
At Sun, for our customers and partners, the Solaris Performance ToolsCD is a well known project of the Frankfurt benchmark center since 1999. This collection of (public domain) tools on a CD enables you to analyze on optimize Sun systems. The tools are used and maintained on a daily basis during our benchmark projects. The CD covers as well many information and links to performance related literature.
This is the fourth release of the ToolsCD with the focus on Solaris 10 support for SPARC and x86/x64 based Sun systems.

The CD covers within 300 MB:

  • dimSTAT v8.1 - collect and analyze performance data

  • Dtrace Tools - Brendan Gregg's collection of Dtrace scripts

  • K9Toolkit - freeware tools written using the KStat library on a Solaris 9

  • sysperfstat - displays utilization and saturation for CPU, memory, disk and network, all on one line.

  • cpuinfo - displays CPU configuration (number, type, clock and strands)

  • meminfo - displays configuration of physical memory and swap devices or files

  • iobar - displays io for disk-devices in a |cpubar|-like fashion

  • iotop - displays |iostat -x| in a |top|-like fashion

  • checkcable - prints the link up status for network interfaces

  • nicstat - prints statistics for the network interfaces such as KBytes/s read and write, Packets/s etc.


The Solaris Performance Tools CD is a best effort compilation which comes with a warranty disclaimer, as there is no guaranteed support for the Tools CD. Tool usage is on ones own risk. Horst Leitner is the chief editor of this CD. He's been compilng the work of the entire performance team. Please let them know if the software is helpful for you.

We can make the tools CD available to our SPA ( Sun Partner Advantage) members. Please send me an email. The CD is available as well as a 250MB gzip tar ball for online download.
