REBOOTING BECAUSE OF FORK BOMBS
(the number of processes in the system reaches the maximum limit when a user, even a superuser, tries to execute some command, the system will respond with Vfork failed)
In Solaris under SPARC, this can be controlled by specifying a line in /etc/system
And reboot the system. Now a user can have maximum of 64 processes under his ownership. By default the 'maxuprc' value is 16*maxusers - 5 where 'maxusers' is another tunable
parameter in /etc/system
Caution : You should have a backup of /etc/system file before you make the changes. So that you can revert back to old system file using boot -a option in case of
inconsistent system file.
