Hosts page in the HP-UX IVM view

The IVM Host View tab provides an overview of all available HP IVM hosts in the HP virtualization environment, including details about CPU and memory utilization, unused resources and more.

The following figure shows the HP IVM Host View tab in the IVM Host View tab:

An example of the HP IVM Host View tab

The HP IVM Host View table lists all HP IVM hosts in the selected domain.

  • By default, the metric tables in this view are filtered on all domains. Use the domain filter options to select the required domain from the table.
  • By default, the summarization time range for all metrics is set to Last 30 days. Use the time filter options controls to select an alternate range.

For detailed information on how to use filters, see Using filtering options in views in the TrueSight console.

Each row corresponds to a HP IVM host and shows the following information:

Viewing the details page for an IVM Host

To view the details page for a particular host, click the name of the host in the Host column. The Host details page displays the following information:


  • General details: General partition details, such as name, type, description, number of elements within it, and tags are displayed at the top of the page. 
  • Related Information panel: Displays links to detailed pages for Thresholds and Partition details.

  • Tags panel: Displays tags, if any, that are associated with the pool. For more information, see Working with tag filters. 

  • Summary information: The Summary tab, that is displayed by default, displays performance details for the selected pool in a horizontal summary table, as well as charts.

    Analysis charts: Core metrics for the selected entity are displayed as analysis charts, depending on available data. At the bottom of each chart is a link that takes you to the Data Explorer view for the specific resource type, and displays charts and information for a larger set of metrics.

    To return to this page, click located towards the top-right side in the Data Explorer tab.

    The data displayed in Data Explorer view charts for any resource part of this view category, is based on the time filter that is applied to the primary view in this tab. You can select Advanced time periods (other than default/basic) from the Data Explorer view for the selected resource, to view charts over a different time resolution.

    You can download charts, annotate them, print them, and so on. For more information, see Managing charts 

  • Configuration Details: The Configuration Details tab displays the configuration metrics for the pool.
