Future saturations in the HP-UX nPar/vPar view

The HP-UX nPar/vPar Future Saturations view displays all partitions that are projected to have CPU, memory, or file system saturation within the next 30 days. The 30 day default can be changed by modifying the 'Future Saturation – Show partitions whose forecasted days to saturation are under or equal to threshold' parameter. All values are calculated over the last full month and the current month.

The nPar/vPar Future Saturations tab allows you to toggle between viewing future saturation details for:

For more information on viewing future saturation details for nPar/vPar partitions and hosts, refer to the following sections:

Certain minimum amount of historical data is required to provide accurate Days to Saturation (DTS) values. Therefore, Yesterday and Last 7 days time filter selection is not applied to DTS calculation. DTS calculation is always based on last 30 days of data.

The following figure shows the Future Saturations tab displaying information on nPar/vPar Partitions filtered on all domains.

The nPar/vPar Partition Future Saturations table lists future saturation information for all nPar/vPar partitions in the selected domain. Each row corresponds to a nPar/vPar partition and shows the following information:
