optisa command

On the Solaris operating system, the optisa command determines which variant instruction set is optimal to use on the system. The optisa command prints which instruction_set out of the ones specified in the command will perform best on this machine. In this case, "best" is defined by the order in which instruction set names are returned by isalist.


optisa instruction_set



Display results similar to the example below.

usage: /usr/bin/optisa isalist


optisa is preferable to "uname -p" or "uname -m" in determining which of several binary versions of a given program should be used on the given machine.

isalist — Display the native instruction sets on a Solaris system.
uname — Print information about the current system.
