Solaris 10, cvm & high CPU usage

Most of our Midrange systems are running on Linux, I was hired for my Linux skills, but find myself looking after several Solaris machines as well while I'm on-call. And they're costing me lots of sleep with alerts for high CPU usage (when apps kick in, e.g. Oracle or Sun LDAP Directory have actual load) the machines easily sit on 95-100% CPU for extended periods of ti (HowTos)
