After upgrade to 4.95 stopped to show the CPU graphics

After I upgrade to 4.95, all frames and Lpars have stopped to show CPU graphics

rmlparutil -m Server-9179-MHC-SN82DEEF3 
chlparutil -r config-s 60

But this time din't resolve


  • Hi,

    it something what might appear under some very rare conditions in LPAR2RRD 4.95-3 version only. In fact it is strange HMC issue when locally is set LC_NUMERIC variable. I would say HMC bug.

    Then as a fix hash (comment out) this code on the top of these scripts 3 load*sh

    # No no, it affects date format coming from the HMC in some rare cases, no idea why ....
    #if [ `locale 2>/dev/null| grep  LC_NUMERIC| egrep "^C$|US" | wc -l` -eq 0 ]; then
    #  # locale LC_NUMERIC might cause a problem in decimal separator, setting to "C"
    #  export LC_NUMERIC

    You can also update to 4.95-4 released last week where it is fixed in the same way.

  • Thanks Pavel
    I upgraded to 4.95-4
    Now it's solved
