    hi chao ping i know u good at solaris.
    can you help me on this.

    why the proc/w column in vmstat always staying value of non zero,
    any reason why these processes swap out to disk ? I have 4GB physical memory...i think is enough for my application.
    How to reset it to zero besides reboot the server?
    It is happen because of SGA setting or share memory/processes setting in /etc/system ?

    Please help.
