Collection Services data files: QAPMLPARH
This database file contains logical partition configuration and utilization data as it is known to the hypervisor.
This data is collected if the collecting partition has been authorized to obtain it. This authorization is a partition configuration attribute set on the Hardware Management Console (HMC).
A POWER6® system with firmware level xx340_075 or later is required for this data to be available.
|INTNUM||Interval number: The nth sample database interval based on the start time specified in the Create Performance Data (CRTPFRDTA) command.||PD (5,0)|
|DTETIM||Interval date (yymmdd) and time (hhmmss): The date and time of the sample interval, expressed in local system time.||C (12)|
|DTECEN||Century digit. 0 indicates 19xx , and 1 indicates 20xx.||C (1)|
|INTSEC||Elapsed interval seconds: The number of seconds since the last sample interval.||B (4,0)|
|HPPID||Partition identifier. This is the binary value that is consistent with the partition number in the QAPMCONF file with GKEY of PN.||B (4,0)|
|HPOSID||Operating system identifier.
|HPSHRF||Shared processor flag. Indicates if the partition
uses shared processors:
|HPVPRC||Virtual processors. The number of virtual processors currently configured for this partition.||B (4,0)|
|HPVPID||Virtual shared pool ID. This is the identifier of the partition's current virtual shared processor pool.||B (4,0)|
|HPPRCCC||Current processing capacity. The partition capacity that is represented as the number of processor units currently allocated to this partition.||B (5,2)|
|HPMEMC||Partition memory. This is the amount of memory in megabytes that is currently allocated to the partition.||B (18,0)|
|HPPRCE||Processor entitled time. The amount of processor time in milliseconds that the partition was entitled to consume based on its processing capacity.||B (18,0)|
|HPPRCEU||Processor entitled time used. The amount of processor time in milliseconds that the partition had use of a processor due to its entitled capacity. This value will not exceed the partition entitled time (field HPPRCE). For dedicated processor partitions, all time consumed is reported as capped time. For shared processor partitions this represents the capped capacity used.||B (18,0)|
|HPPRCUU||Uncapped processor time used. The amount of time in milliseconds a shared uncapped partition had use of a processor in excess of its entitled capacity. (Fields HPPRCEU and HPPRCUU should be added together for total processing time used by uncapped partitions.)||B (18,0)|
|HPPRCD||Donated processor time. The amount of processor time in milliseconds donated by the partition to the physical shared processor pool. This value may be non-zero only for dedicated partitions that are able to donate their unused CPU.||B (18,0)|
|HPPRCIDL||Processor idle time. The amount of processor
time in milliseconds the partition was idle as reported by the partition
to the hypervisor.
For all partitions (especially dedicated partitions), the hypervisor reported processor time used includes time the partition was in control of the processor but did not use it for real work. The partition view of idle time is reflected here for partitions that report it (dependent on the operating system).
formula yields time used from a partition perspective:
|HPCYCL||Partition cycles. The number of non-idle processor cycles occurring while the partition had use of a processor. This value is available only for partitions running on Power6® and Power7® hardware.||B (18,0)|
|HPINST||Partition instructions completed. The number of hardware instructions completed while the partition had use of a processor. When running on Power6® and Power7® hardware, partition idle loop instructions are not counted.||B (18,0)|
|HPMEML||Minimum memory - the minimum amount of memory (in units of megabytes) that is needed in this partition.||B (18,0)|
|HPMEMH||Maximum memory - the maximum amount of memory (in units of megabytes) that can be assigned to this partition.||B (18,0)|
|HPVPRL||Minimum virtual processors. The minimum number of virtual processors that are needed in this partition.||B (4,0)|
|HPVPRH||Maximum virtual processors. The maximum number of virtual processors that can be assigned to this partition.||B (4,0)|
|HPPRCCL||Minimum processing capacity. The minimum amount of processing capacity that is needed in this partition.||B (5,2)|
|HPPRCCH||Maximum processing capacity. The maximum amount of processing capacity that can be assigned to this partition.||B (5,2)|
|HPNAME||Partition name. Name of partition as entered into HMC (7 bit ASCII). Within this file the name is padded with blanks.||C (48)|
|HPVAL01 - HPVAL08||Reserved.||B (18,0)|
|HPPRCT||Processor virtual time. The amount of time in milliseconds the partition had use of a processor (time that hardware instructions were being counted). This value is available only for partitions running on Power8® and later hardware.||B (18,0)|
|DATETIME||Interval date and time: The date and time of the sample interval, expressed in local system time.||Timestamp|
|UTCTIME||UTC interval date and time: The date and time of the sample interval, expressed in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).||Timestamp|
