Implementing a flow control

In the last subsection, we handled resource control on processors and memory. In Oracle Solaris 11, the network control has acquired importance and relevance, allowing us to set a network flow control based on TCP/IP services and ports. Read the next pages to learn a bit more.

Getting ready

This recipe requires a virtual machine (VMware or VirtualBox) that runs Oracle Solaris 11 on one processor, with 4 GB RAM and one physical network interface. To make our life simpler, we are going to reuse the same environment as the one in the previous recipes.
