U3 is fairly old now.

Yes and we paid to be early adopters of solaris zones.

Can you elaborate on this please? Is there a bugid?

Performance problem is mainly due to the fact that each zones share the same kernel. Thus when a software goes in kernel mode, the CPU time is not controlled anymore and the zone. So if there is a software bug during kernel mode, the zone will eat all the CPUs despite ressource control set.

Its no bug, it's the way zone are working.

- and now the servers reboot itself in u5
