The PATROL Knowledge Module for UNIX and Linux supports the IBM AIX virtualization feature called Workload Partitions. Workload Partitions (WPARs) enable you to create and run one or more isolated virtual environments on a single physical server, running as completely independent systems. WPARs are created and managed from a global environment, which does not belong to any particular workload partition.
The WPAR application class monitors the attributes and statistics of WPARs on the system. It enables you to view configuration and resource utilization data for System as well as Application WPARs.
