Its mostly depends on the applications you are running on the Solaris container. for oracle database you can follow this guideline as an initial sizing for swap size:
RAM SIZE SWAP SPACE
Between 1 GB and 2 GB 1.5 times the size of RAM
Between 2 GB and 16 GB Equal to the size of RAM
More than 16 GB 16 GB
You can check http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E19253-01/817-5093/fsswap-31050/index.html for general guidelines.
But i will advice you allocate at least swap size that is equal or greater than the RAM (except u are using RAM of 32-128GB!!!)
NOTE: for the issues you are having...better check for memory leakages! libumem can be helpful for your troubleshooting.
