Solaris Dynamic System Domains (DSDs), or simply Solaris Domains, allow flexible and dynamic allocation of CPU and memory resources. 

The Solaris DSD view enables you to manage the capacity of a virtualized infrastructure running Solaris Dynamic System Domain, and presents key capacity metrics and charts for Solaris DSD hosts and domains. You can use DSD views to see the total capacity, used capacity, remaining capacity and growth trend for CPU and memory subsystems.

To access the view, in the TrueSight console navigation pane, select Capacity Views > Virtualization > Solaris > DSD. The Solaris DSD page contains subviews that provide details about Solaris hosts, DSDs, and maps. 

 

Each Solaris domain runs an instance of the Solaris operating environment, and when an application fails or an error occurs in one instance of the domain, the other domain continues to operate unaffected. Solaris DSDs can be dynamically reapportioned, and if a domain requires more resources, those resources can be reallocated.

The Solaris DSD view enables you to answer critical questions related to your virtualization environment, such as:
  • Which host should the new domains be added to?
  • Do certain hosts require a better load balancing between them?
  • Which systems in a particular domain have exceeded their threshold values?

The Solaris DSD Hosts subview presents the resource allocation and usage pattern for the domains in the host. Detailed views allow you to see a time series chart of the key metrics for the last 30 days. The Map page provides a graphical representation of the capacity usage.

You can choose to view the data for a specific domain, tag, or time period by using the corresponding filters. For more information, see Using filtering options in views in the TrueSight console.

Local settings

You can manage the local thresholds by configuring the Maps Settings and Other Settings.

FieldDescription

Maps Settings

CPU Utilization %Modify the required values for displaying the threshold values for the CPU utilization in the Maps page of the Solaris DSD view:
  • In the Low Threshold box, edit the threshold value for CPU utilization in percentage. The entities with capacity starting from 0 to value below the value in this box are displayed in the shades of blue color.

  • In the Good Threshold box, edit the threshold value for CPU utilization in percentage. The entities with capacity starting from the value in the Low Threshold box to the value below the value in this box are displayed in the shades of green color.

  • In the Warn Threshold box, edit the threshold value for CPU utilization in percentage. The entities with capacity starting from the value in the Good Threshold box to the value below the value in this box are displayed in the shades of yellow color.
    The entities with capacity above the value in the Warn Threshold box are displayed in the shades of red color.
Memory Utilization %Modify the required values for displaying the threshold values for the memory utilization in the Maps page of the Solaris DSD view:
  • In the Low Threshold box, edit the threshold value for CPU utilization in percentage. The entities with capacity starting from 0 to value below the value in this box are displayed in the shades of blue color.

  • In the Good Threshold box, edit the threshold value for CPU utilization in percentage. The entities with capacity starting from the value in the Low Threshold box to the value below the value in this box are displayed in the shades of green color.

  • In the Warn Threshold box, edit the threshold value for CPU utilization in percentage. The entities with capacity starting from the value in the Good Threshold box to the value below the value in this box are displayed in the shades of yellow color.
    The entities with capacity above the value in the Warn Threshold box are displayed in the shades of red color.
