Anyone here running a busy MailScanner server on Solaris? Have you tried 
the cooltst utility to check its appropriateness for a coolthreads server?

I've tried it on my linux servers and it says it is a good candidate 
altho there isnt much detail. I think if you run it on solaris you get 
more detail...

The new T2 processor has a FP unit for each core so would probably be a 
good match for MailScanner. It looks like a great processor but it may 
be too late to stop the tide of SPARC to x86 migration...

tool is downloadable via this link:

thoughts/opinions welcomed...
