A while ago we had a client running PostgreSQL on a Quad v440, and the 
performance was horrific. There are some known issues with PostgreSQL 
and solaris. AFAIK there was a kernel patch to alleviate some of the 
issues, but i'm unsure of the state of this as its been sometime since 
i've had any experience with PostgreSQL and solaris.
