NMON tabs not shown for some LPARs

edited August 24 in LPAR2RRD

I have a number of AIX LPARs, from which I transfer NMON data files to the LPAR2RRD server and import them using a local OS agent on the LPAR2RRD server. I have done this for years and it is working fine.

Now I am trying to do the same from a number of Linux (RHEL) LPARs. For the first two it worked fine - NMON tabs showed up on the LPAR pages.

But from the remaining it is not working. Looking at the agent log, I see no errors (see excerpt below) - but NMON tabs are not shown for these LPARS.

Does anyone have a hint?

Regards, Carsten

Excerpt from agentlog (b4chl22 is one of the LPARs not showing NMON tabs):


  • Hi,

    what is your lpar2rrd version Settings->About

    Send us one of that nmon files e.g. /nmon_import/b4chl22_<time>.nmon

    via https://upload.lpar2rrd.com

  • Hi

    Version is: LPAR2RRD version7.42-7

    I will upload a file in a few minutes.


  • Hi

    is not difference in partition name "Partition Name                              : b4chl22-ITR1_2"

    and NMON just sends




  • Yes, on the HMC our LPARs have a different/longer name than the actual hostname on the LPAR OS.

    But that is so for many of our AIX LPARs and has not been a problem before.

    I can see that the first 2 Linux LPARs from which I imported NMON data - and which is showing NMON tabs - actually has LPAR name = hostname.

  • NMON also sends:


    BBBP,6725,lparstat -i,"Partition Name                              : b4chl22-ITR1_2"

  • Let us have a look where is the problem

    send us actual logs

    Note a short problem description in the text field of the upload form.

    cd /home/lpar2rrd/lpar2rrd # or where is your LPAR2RRD working dir

    tar cvhf logs.tar logs tmp/*txt tmp/*pid

    gzip -9 logs.tar

    Send us logs.tar.gz via https://upload.lpar2rrd.com

  • Hi

    logs are ok,

    can you send one of nmon files, which has tabs e.g. b4tst03_2211xx-xxxx.nmon
