If you have optimized for space, then fragmentation should not be an issue
unless if there is bugs in Solaris. Use tunefs to make sure the filesystem is
optimized for space.

If everything else fails, shrink the configured size of your cache somewhat
to give the filesystem some more slack on dealing with fragmentation.
