Slow performance is experienced when rendering data in a 3D Analyst scene on Solaris.
Indirect rendering of OpenGL causes slow performance.
Whenever possible, the OpenGL for Sun renders directly to the frame buffer bypassing the X server. This is enabled by Sun's Direct Graphics Access (DGA) mechanism for locking portions of the screen. However, a Solaris security feature allows only the user who originally logged into the window system to use DGA to lock portions of the screen. Nonowners of the window system do not have access to DGA.
If you notice poor performance when rendering locally, the cause may be this Solaris security feature. For example, if you start the window system and another user at the workstation changes to the user's own environment, the application will not run via DGA even though the second user is running the application locally.
chmod 666 /dev/mouse /dev/kbd /dev/sound/* /dev/fbs/*
/dev/console 0600 /dev/mouse:/dev/kbd
/dev/console 0600 /dev/sound/* #audio devices
/dev/console 0600 /dev/fbs/* # frame buffers
Performing the steps above will make your system no longer secure.
