Feature request: VM Top Utilization of CPU in %


what about a Chart or Top Page where you can see the Top VM regarding the avg CPU load (Now we have the avg Ghz usage)

It would be great to see which VM consume the most CPU in %, so you can start resizing these. The Data is already collected,as you can see it, when insoecting a single vm.

is there a possibility to get this Top List?

Best Regards Timm


  • Hi,

    such information is in heatmap: https://demo.lpar2rrd.com/?menu=50dcddd&tab=0
    Color is based on % of CPU usage.
    I know this is realtime (data for past hour)

  • i already found this. but it would be great feature for reorganizing if there would be toplist for average % cpu and memory (day/week/month/year) to identify vms that are oversized and such who maybe need more ressources.

    especially because these values are already stored if you go to vm under the tab cpu

    or is it possible to customize the top vm page by myself, where is the source from which it is created? 
  • look at the next tab in heatmap, there is same information just in a table https://demo.lpar2rrd.com/?menu=50dcddd&tab=2

  • But Data is average from last hour, right?

    for example: we have vm who go hourly to 80% cpu load for an hour, then go idl for 1 hour and start again. with an average cpu load from last day i could identify these easily. with data from the last hour i get red or green regarding when i look on the heatmap

  • yep, last hour data is in the heatmap.

    averaging for longer time does not help in scenario that there is 1 hour 80% load, then next hour for example 20% , average will be 50%, nothing to worry about ...

    however I agree it could be useful in other scenarios, I would see that implemented under VVM TOP , add second column named "CPU %"

    consider same with memory, that would be great
  • ok, I will create a task for development, thanks for the idea, it will be included in next product release (Sep 2020)
  • Hi Timm,

    please download these two scripts.


    Gunzip it and copy to /home/lpar2rrd/lpar2rrd/bin ### or where is your LPAR2RRD working dir

    After that please run this command in command line.

    cd /home/lpar2rrd/
    1) rm tmp/*ent-run*; . etc/lpar2rrd.cfg; perl bin/daily_lpar_check.pl

    Let us know.
