The Future Saturation page in the AIX WPAR view displays all WPARs 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 Future Saturation tab allows you to toggle between viewing future saturation details for:

This topic provides information about viewing future saturation details for AIX WPAR hosts and performing actions such as exporting and filtering the information available.

To view future saturation details for AIX WPAR

The AIX WPAR Future Saturations table lists future saturation information for all AIX WPAR partitions in the selected domain.

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.  

Each row corresponds to a AIX WPAR and shows the following information:
