3.20It contains these major enhancements:

- real time fix, for IVM/SDMC fixed download time range from 86400 to 1440 minutes

- implemented CPW benchmark (iSeries based benchmark) for CPU workload estimator
- changed directory structure of lpar2rrd home
Knows issues which might appear after 3.20 upgrade.
Please check below before going to support. Apologize for inconvenience.
Does not work CPU pool alerting due to a bug in update_cfg_alert.sh. Download and replace scripts/update_cfg_alert.sh.
Remove etc/alert.cfg if you have already created it and create it once more via new script: "$ scripts/update_cfg_alert.sh"
If you have any problem then at first look at etc/lpar2rd.cfg if SSH directive has a space between "ssh" and "-q" : SSH="ssh -q"
Best is remove "-q" from there.
Update or install process fails for creating favourites, alerts and custom group cfg files.
Run failed cmds manually.
Note that for alerting use this script scripts/update_cfg_alert.sh as is explained above.
Physical and Logical configuration web page is completely blank
Solution is clearing browser cache/restart browser/press shift during reload or all together.
There has been found a bug in alerting, fix it manualy before is released 3.21 where it will be fixed.
