How to monitoring a system WPAR?

edited January 2017 in LPAR2RRD

I have installed the agent version 4.95-7 at  globalwpar

root@globalwpar:/> rpm -qa | grep lpar2rrd

and has set a cron job, for a lpar2rrd user,

(lpar2rrd@globalwpar) /home/lpar2rrd> crontab -l
* * * * * /usr/bin/perl /opt/lpar2rrd-agent/ nim-master > /var/tmp/lpar2rrd-agent.out 2>&1

and that works fine; but in a System WPAR

root@globalwpar:/> clogin systemwpar


I has set a cron job for a root user,

#WPAR Monitoring
* * * * * /usr/bin/perl /opt/lpar2rrd-agent/ nim-master > /var/tmp/lpar2rrd-agent-systemwpar.out 2>&1

and doesnt work, I cant see the systemwpar below the globalwpar.

Does anyone know why this would fail?




  • Hi,

    it does not appear immediatly on the lpar2rrd server in the GUI.

    1. Ctrl-F5 in the GUI and check if it is there
    2. cd /home/lpar2rrd/lpar2rrd; ./ html
         and again Ctrl-F5

    When nothing then list this dir
    cd /home/lpar2rrd/lpar2rrd
    ls -l data/<server>/*/<lpar name / global wpar>/

    You should see there a directory with WPAR name. Is tere any data
    ls -l data/<server>/*/<lpar name / global wpar>/<wpar name>/

  • Hello Pavel,

    I solved the problem, applying your suggestion and changing (in lpar2rrd.cfg) the hostname of the HMC instead of the ip.

    Now, I can see the systemwpar under the globalwpar.

    Another question, about "Version 4.95-4 brings WPAR (CPU and memory) added graphics to the hosted LPAR data cards"

    What is the correct configuration?

    Thanks a lot


    you should see on the LPAR level (global WPAR) WPAR CPU and MEM aggregated graphs per all wpars.
    It works automatically.
  • Hi,

    I can't see aggregated graphs per wpars

    My LPAR2RRD version is 4.95-4 and the agent version is lpar2rrd-agent-4.95-7

    maybe I need to erase lpar2rrd/data/*/global/wpar and rebuild?

  • This ouptup:

    cd /home/lpar2rrd/lpar2rrd
    ls -lR data/<server>/*/<lpar name / global wpar>/

  • This look like director of a WPAR.
    I would need to list directory of global wpar == LPAR. (ls -lR)
    Whole path pls (anonymize serial/hmc if necessary)
