I'm currently administrating an IBM Power 740 server via an HMC. We have four LPARs running, two VIOS LPARs, one application LPAR and one database LPAR. We have implemented
lpar2rrd to monitor CPU usage and memory on the entire server (CEC), we can also monitor CPU usage per LPAR. However we can't monitor memory per LPAR.
We've been asked to graph the memory usage per LPAR so the help desk people could monitor memory in a LED display.
I know the
svmon commands; I was thinking to parse some attributes of one of these commands and graph them with Processing.
Is there any other method you know to do this?
