Re: Monit no longer reporting swap usage after Solaris patching

Is the host which reports error solaris zone? 

Monit uses getvmusage() when running in Solaris zone, otherwise it uses kstat. 
It seems that S11 SRU 12.4 and S10 150400-41 either has some bug or new 
restriction for getvmusage() in zones.

Unfortunately we cannot test it - we have Solaris development license and 
running Solaris 11.3 SRU 1.5 + Solaris 10 U11 with 147147-26 / 147148-26. Is it 
possible to get remote access to some solaris zone running the new kernel?

Best regards,
