Forgot to mention
(A) SGAs are sized similarly. In fact, it is 15% more on the linux boxes because these boxes had more memory than the solaris set.

(b) we have pga_aggregate_target
(c) We are monitoring the temp space but the point is in linux the same query (and it could be bad already in solaris) is taking more temp space than corresponding solaris env.
