Monitoring LPARs with dedicated CPU?

Using the cpu monitoring with the agent installed. CPU alerts work fine for LPARs using shared processors.
I have LPARs with dedicated processors and they always show as "maxed" 100%.
Is there a special way to configure alerts so it will report when CPU usage hits 90%?


  • What version of the product do you use?
    There is support or monitoring of CPU dedicated lpars for quite a while, you should see real utilization instead of 100%.
  • BTW there was a bug in alerting of CPU dedicated partitions fixed just recetly, use this hotfix:
    Gunzip it and copy to /home/lpar2rrd/lpar2rrd/bin (755, lpar2rrd owner)
    -rwxr-xr-x    1 lpar2rrd staff         73669 Oct 06 17:03 bin/
    If your web browser gunzips it automatically then just rename it: mv

  • v4.85 
    this is the alert line. server has 12 dedicated processors.

  • updated to 4.92 and it seems to be working properly.
  • yep, this fix is in 4.92
