We're using it under Solaris 10, although we've never maxed out the CPUs.
We've got a similar scenario. We have a database that needs to get time, if
the box is ever maxed out.

One point that needs to be remembered is that the listener for your favored
database needs to be started in the same project that you run the database

I have a "" project that handles most stuff. Then there special
projects for the databases that need them. Our favored database has its own
listener on a separate port.
