SUMMARY: WARNING: kernel map: rmap overflow, lost

I didn't receive any solutions for the following (posted 12/16):


Our database server sometimes emit a bunch of the following
messages in /var/adm/messages:

   WARNING: kernel map: rmap overflow, lost [xxx, yyy]

I don't know how to reproduce it - it may be triggered by
during our end of day processing when approx. 120 workstation
clients do socket I/O with the database server processes
more or less at the same time.

The platform: 4/690MP (one processor), Solaris 2.4 (101945-36).

I've seen bug reports for this in SunSolve and the sun-managers
archives but never any solutions.
