    It is conventional to actually ask a question on the Forum rather than make statements.

    From personal experience for a cross LPAR and machine level monitoring tool I recommend Ganglia with he POWER additions. It does involve a demon on each OS. This is open source and there are a great number of users to ask for help.

    To avoid that but reduced information the lpar2rrd tool is popular but I have not tried it myself. This went open source and you can purchase support if you need it.

    Thanks, Nigel

    what about to check demo page of products you have listed and make your own decision based on what you need/like/...

    Ganglia: http://monitor.millennium.berkeley.edu/
    LPAR2RRD: http://demo.lpar2rrd.com/lpar2rrd/
    Remember Ive seen also nmon2web/nmon2rrd demo long time ago but cannot find it now.
