Free performance monitoring for VMware™ and IBM Power Systems™

WPAR monitoring

It is supported since version 4.50.
Following data is collected and graphed from WPARs:
  • OS CPU utilization of user/sys in CPU cores
  • Memory utilization of used/pinned/fs cache in MB
  • Paging rate in MB/sec

WPAR aggregated graphs

Version 4.95-4 brings WPAR aggregated graphs (CPU and Memory) in hosted LPAR data tabs
WPAR CPU WPAR MEM

Installation & configuration

  • You have to install standard OS agent package on the hosted LPAR (GLOBAL env).
  • Test it:
    # clogin wpar1
    $ /usr/bin/perl /opt/lpar2rrd-agent/lpar2rrd-agent.pl  -d __LPAR2RRD-SERVER__  
      LPAR2RRD agent version:4.70.7
      Wed Mar  2 08:27:01 2016
      ...
    
  • Schedule it in WPAR OS crontab under arbitrary user:
    * * * * * /usr/bin/perl /opt/lpar2rrd-agent/lpar2rrd-agent.pl  __LPAR2RRD-SERVER__  > /var/tmp/lpar2rrd-agent.out-wpar1 2>&1
    
In fact usage is the same as on the LPAR level you just do not have to install it within WPAR OS as /opt is shared with the hosted LPAR. (install it only in GLOBAL env, not in WPAR)
