Thanks for replyes!

The answer is
and making a search for
        kernel paramers
gives the great amount of documentation also
concerning the performance.
One page is e.g.

Solaris 2.6 System Administrator Collection Vol 1 >> System
Administration Guide

Tuning Kernel Parameters (Tasks)

It seems that I can manage for a start with these.
I also ordered the
Adrian Cockcroft's book "Sun Performance and Tuning"
which was proposed.
