The IBM Performance Management (PM) for PowerLinux is a dynamic, easy to use, performance and capacity planning function that is specifically designed to address the challenges of systems management.
PM for PowerLinux automates many of the functions associated with capacity planning and performance analysis for IBM PowerLinux Systems, and for the IBM Power Systems, IBM System i and IBM System p models running Linux. It's simple, there's nothing that you need to do other than activate the PM Agent for PowerLinux and periodically check that data is being collected and transmitted to IBM.
The PM Agent for PowerLinux collects performance metrics from the server or partition and sends the data to IBM using either the electronic Service agent or via the Hardware Managment Console (HMC).
