Hi experts,

I am running out of memory on the system due to paging and, when I run "prstat -aL" the sum of RSS column does not add up. Where is the rest of my memory? Any pointers appreciated. Here is the data

prstat -aL

When I add the RSS column should it total to my physical memory on the system. I have 80GB RAM on the system
