The IBM Tivoli Monitoring: System p Agents depend on the AIX perfagent.tools fileset to collect performance data. There are known APARs in older levels of the perfagent.tools fileset that can cause the agent data provider to core dump, can cause the CEC Base agent to show monitored LPARs as unmonitored, and can cause invalid data to be collected. The solution is to install the latest perfagent.tools fileset on the monitored LPARs.
Please see this technote for a complete description of the APARs and the recommended levels of the perfagent.tools fileset: 1447016
