Well...not really a summary. I only received requests for the Tuning Overview
mentioned in the original mail (see below). I would still like to hear from
those with buffer cache tuning experience...many thanks.

For those that requested the Sun Performance Tuning Overview, you can either
pull it off sunsolve_2_4_2, doc 1130 (stb) or possibly order it directly
from Sun (part no: 801-4872-07).

FYI, I think Adrian Cockcroft's book based on this Sun technical bulletin
in now in press ISBN: 0-13-149642-5 (~$60.00).
