"pstat -s" on SunOS4, and "swap -s" on SunOS5. From Solaris man page:
: -s Print summary information about total swap
: space usage and availability:
: allocated The total amount of swap space
: (in 1024-byte blocks)
: currently allocated for use as
: backing store.
: reserved The total amount of swap space
: (in 1024-bytes blocks) not
: currently allocated, but
: claimed by memory mappings for
: possible future use.
: used The total amount of swap space
: (in 1024-byte blocks) that is
: either allocated or reserved.
