We've collected lots of useful links here to help you use Sun servers with CoolThreads technology. CoolThreads servers are SPARC systems that have Chip Multithreading technology (CMT) provided by UltraSPARC T1, T2, or T2 Plus processors. These servers provide new levels of performance, scalability, and reliability. They also deliver reductions in space, power consumption, and cost, and they provide built-in, no-cost virtual-machine capabilities through Solaris Containers and Logical Domains (LDoms).
The Sun Chip Multithreading (CMT) Servers web page provides resources and information for CoolThreads servers, such as links to white papers, videos, what's new info, and other resources, including:
In addition, the CoolThreads - CMT Tuning and Resources page provides good info to help you install, tune, and deploy your CoolThreads server. It also provides links to no-cost development and deployment tools, product documentation, FAQs, and more.
If you monitor, analyze, and tune applications, check out the Implementation page for UltraSPARC T2 and T2 Plus Servers, which can take you through each stage of the implementation cycle, from profiling your application, to tuning and downloading optimized open source software, to self-help or assisted support.
