Since Solaris 2.6 (1997), using psrset(1M).
In Solaris 9 (2001), a persistent abstraction (known as a resource pool) was
introduced as part of the Resource Manager (S9RM) functionality. In
versions of Solaris Express, this framework was extended with a
dynamic assignment capability, based on per-pool and per-set
objectives. See pooladm(1M), poolcfg(1), poold(1M), and so on for an
introduction to resource pools.
You can search on http://docs.sun.com for any of these terms.
* Solaris trivia: poold(1M), a system daemon, was implemented in Java.
