Add/Remove/Rename servers

  • Add new server
    Suppose you connect a new server to the HMC which is already under LPAR2RRD
    Only the thing you need to do is allow utilization data collection for that server
    Log on to the HMC and set sample rate to 60secs globally, then check whether it is ok
    hscroot@hmc1:~> chlparutil -r config -s 60  
    hscroot@hmc1:~> lslparutil -r config  -F name,sample_rate  
      PWR6A-9117-MMA-SN103A4B0,60 
    
  • Remove old server
    • There is a functionality which should stop the server appearing in the WEB when it has not been updated for more than 10 days.
      It only stops the server from appearing on the web page, the data still persists there.
    • You might only exclude the server from procesing & displaing via directive MANAGED_SYSTEMS_EXCLUDE in etc/lpar2rrd.cfg.
    • complete removing include data:
      (there is one dir and one sym link to that, delete both)
      Remove server data and sym link pointing to the server directory
      cd /home/lpar2rrd/lpar2rrd
      $ ls -l data/<server>
      $ rm -rf  data/<server>
      $ rm data/<sym link to server dir>
      
      Then refresh source for the Web GUI by:
      $ ./load.sh html
      
      Reload the Web browser by Ctrl-F5
  • Rename the server
    You can rename the server whenever, LPAR2RRD recognizes the change automatically and updates the web page during next run. Nothing will be lost.
