  • Page 2 Hardware Maintenance Agreement © 2010 IBM Corporation All entitled graphs are accessible by the end user customer via secure IBM Internet ID and password. End users are provided a ‘registration’ key when the server or partition first transmits data. Visit the PM Getting Started tour on the PM for Power Systems home page for more information.
  • Page 3 These graphs are available at no additional charge providing the system is under warranty or the system is covered under an IBM Hardware Maintenance Agreement. PM for Power Systems graphs are at the partition level, not at the total system level (unless there is no partitioning on the system).
  • Page 4 The Full Function detailed reports available from PM for Power Systems are packaged differently by country. Contact your local IBM Representative or an IBM Business Partner for more information. PM for Power Systems graphs are at the partition level, not at the total system level (unless there is no partitioning on the system).

  • Page 6: Guidelines For Total Processor Utilization

    IBM Global Technology Services Guidelines for total processor utilization These thresholds determine whether a resource is within guideline, marginal or critical in the following processor utilization reports. © 2010 IBM Corporation These are the processor utilization guidelines. They are based on the number of processors that are configured for the server/LPAR.
  • Page 7: Average Processor Utilization In % Per Day

    IBM Global Technology Services Average Processor Utilization in % per Day © 2010 IBM Corporation Average Processor Utilization in % per day The Average Processor Utilization in % per Day graph shows the average processor utilization per measured day during the period for three groups of priorities.
  • Page 8 It is likely that your system experienced a degradation of throughput some day during the period, if this percentage is high during a longer period. • The red line shows the interactive limit that is defined in your system, set by the interactive feature installed, the IBM i software Edition or set by the partition definition.
  • Page 9 12 months of utilization. PM for Power Systems will depict the IBM i workload growth over time in CPWs. The advantage of plotting CPWs is that it is a normalized unit of work independent of the resources allocated to the server/LPAR. This means that the black diamonds on the graph represent the workload trend independent of the resources allocated to the server/LPAR.
