IBM Global Technology Services Creating a Group One of the features of PM for Power Systems is the ability to create groups of servers. A group is a collection of servers/LPARs based on the user’s business requirements. For example, a user might have several groups that are based on business regions.
IBM Global Technology Services Adding Servers to a Group Once a group is created, servers may be added to it. To add a server, use the information provided in the registration letter which was sent after the server or LPAR’s first PM data transmission. If the registration key has been lost or forgotten, a link is provided on the Add Server page to request a new one.
IBM Global Technology Services Server Information Page The Server Information Page displays monthly statistics for the first and second shift for each server in the group. Action Buttons, which provide access to additional functions, are located to the left of each server or LPAR.
IBM Global Technology Services Action Buttons Interactive Graphing – Detailed performance reports and graphs at the monthly, daily, and hourly levels, with customizable date ranges. Servers with the Summary option will only have access to the interactive Management Summary Graphs (MSG). See the Interactive Graphing Tours for more information.
