Pinned topic Performance of overall server

‏2013-02-06T17:13:45Z |
Is it possible to view the overall utilization of server, with several VIOS and LPARS?

I am running a p770, there are two VIOS and 5 LPARS. I gather stats (nmon to file, then there the analyzer spreadsheet) of the individual VIOS and LPARS, but is there a way to look at the p770 as a whole and see how it is being utilized.

    Hi,

    Search tools lpar2rrd (free AIX tools for pserie et Iserie)
    www.lpar2rrd.com/

    tool very easy to implement.
    The datas are extracted from HMCs
    Installed on lpars AIX or Linux

    Best regards

    lpar2rrd looks good, but I have a couple of large CPU Dedicated lpars. Seems lpar2rrd always reports 100% use of all processors in a dedicated lpar
