The WPAR application class contains several parameters that provide information about the workload partitions in the AIX environment. The application class enables you to monitors the configuration and resource utilization data for System as well as Application WPARs in the AIX_VIRTUALIZATION container. 

The application class provides information about partition configuration and workload partitions. The parameters monitor WPARs provided in the AIX 6.1 environment. The application class displays statistics such as the CPU utilization, virtual memory size, and paging statistics for the partition. The product creates a separate instance for each WPAR that reports data for a set of parameters.


  • Instances of the WPAR application class are displayed within the AIX_VIRTUALIZATION application class container. The WPAR instance label displays the name of the workload partition and is prefixed with WPAR.
  • The WPAR filesystem instances are displayed within the FILESYSTEM application class. Once discovered, the WPAR filesystem instance label is displayed similarly to the non-global filesystem instance label in the global zone. The label is represented in the WPAR_name:file-system_name format.

The following figure illustrates the basic hierarchy of the WPAR application class but does not necessarily display all instances and parameters.
