Partitions page in the HP-UX nPar/vPar View

The nPar/vPar View tab provides an overview of available nPars and vPars in the HP nPar/vPar virtualization environment, including details about CPU and memory utilization, dedicated processors, and more.

The following figure shows the nPar/vPar View tab filtered on all hosts, and the Templates domain.

Viewing the Partitions table

The Partitions table lists all nPars and vPars in the selected nPar/vPar container host.

  • 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 an nPar/vPar and shows the following information:
