Hello, it is me again, Thierry.I realized after my first blog that we talked about system and application WPAR but I didn’t come with a why use one or the other.So here are some hints.
All commands should get a man page (for example man mkwpar or man wparexec on your AIX system) which will provide detail of syntax and parameters of them and I recommend to read these pages before using the commands.
One way to choose between a System or an Application WPAR is to answers questions like • Do I need to run multiples processes and daemons ?• Do I need file system isolation (writing to global file systems not an issue) ?• Do I need devices ?• Do I need to log on using telnet/rsh ?• Do I need user management ?
If I answer “yes” to any of these questions, then I want to run System WPAR (see the man page for the mkwpar command) – Otherwise an Application WPAR may be sufficient (see the man page for the wparexec command).
Let think about this, and I will come back soon. Bye for now :-)
