Pinned topic wlmstat - cpu is percentage of what?

‏2013-02-28T12:08:31Z |
Hello,
we are using wlmstat to perform invoicing for the customer. We have always been in the idea that the percentage of CPU showed is the percentage of the entitled cpu allocated to the lpar.
However, tests we performed showed that this percentage is based on the number of virtual processors.
Can anyone confirm what the percentage CPU is pointing to ? entitled cpu or number of virtual processors.
This can make a big difference to our invoicing.

Thanks !

    If the LPAR has dedicated CPU then the percentage is for the physical CPUs
    If the LPAR has shared capped CPU then the percentage is of the Entitlement = the maximum it can get to.

    More trick is this one:
    If the LPAR has shared uncapped CPU and the Entitlement is not the same as Virtual CPUs then (I think) the percentage is of the Virtual CPUs but I am not 100% sure.

    You would have to test this or raise a PMR.
