    streams statistics (netstat -m)

    809218
      Hi

      We are analyzing a problem on a Solaris 9 system.
      The streams statistics on the platform are below

      =============== netstat -m for streams ============
      streams allocation:
      cumulative allocation
      current maximum total failures
      streams 783 1617 377735478 0
      queues 1817 2940 702226533 0
      mblk 2928 96266 -508085163 0
      dblk 2903 170790 -219369519 0
      linkblk 6 169 14 0
      strevent 9 169 45446624 0
      syncq 78 184 3576676 0
      qband 0 0 0 0

      What is the cumulative total value here?
      In this case it is negative?
      What would be the reasons as this is a cumulative total?
      What does this signify as there are no allocation failures?
      Where can I find more explanation to the fields that are displayed here?
      Any pointers for any docs?

      Thanks,
      sn
