"On servers, the effect is degraded application response time, and low CPU utilization due
to heavy paging. This happens because Solaris allows the file system cache to grow dynamically to the
point where it steals memory pages from important applications' This is exactly what (we were) seeing on our
systems. By turning on Priority Paging it will put a boundary around the file cache so that system I/O
does not cause web crossing to get paged out as it does now."
This is actually a problem with the Solaris Operating system in general and is in no way directly related to Web Crossing. The standard Solaris 7 OS configuration is setup to allow the file system cache to steal memory from applications causing them to page to disk.
To remedy this you will need to enable "Priority Paging" under either Solaris 2.7 or Solaris 2.6 with kernel patch 105181-09.
