Name

The name of the LPAR.

Model

The model of the LPAR.

Vendor

The LPAR vendor.

Virtual

A flag indicating whether the MFPart is virtual.

Partition

A flag indicating whether the MFPart is a partition.

Software Instances

Software Instances running on this MFPart.

Mainframe

A link to the object page for the containing mainframe computer.

Sysplex

A link to the object page for the sysplex. This is modeled as a Cluster node.

Coupling Facility

A link to the coupling facility that the LPAR is using.

Identity

The following table lists information fields that can be displayed in the Identity group for a mainframe object.

Field name

Details

Part Type

The serial number of the mainframe computer.

VM ID

The description of the mainframe computer.

Virtual

States whether the LPAR is virtual.

Operating System

The full list of information fields which can be displayed in the Operating System group for a mainframe object are shown in the following table.

Field name

Details

Discovered OS

The discovered OS (for example, z/OS SP7.1.1).

Discovered OS Class

The discovered OS class (for example, Mainframe).

Discovered OS Type

The discovered OS type (for example, z/OS).

Inference

Field name

Discovery Access

Lists Discovery Accesses for this mainframe, grouped by scan date. When an endpoint is scanned, a Discovery Access node is created. The Discovery Access node records information such as the start time, end time, Discovery Run of which this is a part, and previous Discovery Access to simplify troubleshooting. Clicking a Discovery Access displays the DiscoveryAccess page for that Discovery Access. Where a Discovery Access is about to be deleted as part of DDD aging, a trash can icon is displayed next to the Discovery Access.

CMDB Synchronization

Field name

Last successful CMDB sync

The time and date at which this MFPart was last successfully synchronized into the CMDB.

Last failed CMDB sync

The time and date at which this MFPart was last unsuccessfully synchronized into the CMDB.

CMDB sync duration

The time (in seconds) spent performing the last CMDB synchronization for this MFPart.

CMDB CI count

The number of CIs corresponding to this MFPart at the last CMDB synchronization.

CMDB Relationship count
