Pinned topic nmon2rrd lpar3.gif

What mean the usedAllCPU and usedPoolCPU lines on lpar3.gif? If there is some doc you can point me to read please do ... I'm using v17a of nmon2rrd on a P6 9917-MMA, shared CPU LPARs sunning AIX 6.1.3

Ref the example attached, this LPAR has 8 VCPU, SMT2 - how do I get 50 CPUs at 2200hrs ?!

    usedAllCPU maps to the nmon LPAR stats column usedAllCPU% - Percentage of tall the CPUs in the machine (I think not including inactive CUoD CPUs)

    usedPoolCPU maps to the nmon LPAR stats column usedPoolCPU% - Percentage of tall the CPUs the the CPU pools = same as above but excluding CPU in Dedicated LPARs.

    So at your peak the 50% is 50% of the Pool CPUS were being used.

    I am not sure I can make sense of the rest of the stats as there are so few details but you appear to have only 8 CPUs in the pool and your LPAR itself was the cause of the 50% Pool use.

    I hope this helps, Nigel Griffiths
