How Live Partition Mobility (LPM) works in LPAR2RRD

  • There are 4 additional "LPM" graphs in LPM tab for each LPAR which has been anyhow migrated (LPM/off-line) in the past
  • Each LPM graph shows CPU utilization of a particular lpar in given time period. Servers where the lpar has been running are differentiated by colors.
  • Historical reports are LPM aware
  • Once the lpar is moved, then it immediately (next ./ run) disappears from the source system
  • LPAR2RRD initially graphs all past LPM actions which are found in your LPAR2RRD data history. It means you get graphed all LPM actions since LPAR2RRD has started data collection
LPM functionality is not freely available. It is provided only to customers under any level of support.

OS agent data and LPM

version 4.70 brings LPM support even for OS agent data.
The LPAR will be visible on actually running server/frame with all its OS agent data history no matter where it was running before, no interruptions, all continuous.
