AIX views

The AIX views provide a summary and the capacity-related details of a virtualized infrastructure running on an AIX environment. Use these views to obtain an at-a-glance view of all entities and drill down into a specific entity to track its capacity. 


The following image illustrates the capabilities of AIX views:


AIX Partitions can be of the following types:

  • Static LPAR (SLPAR): This type of partition is a static partition. The CPU resources it uses are statically assigned. To configure this partition for memory and CPU capacity, you must shut down the portion and start it again after configuration.
  • Dynamic LPAR (DLPAR): This type of partition is a dynamic partition. The CPU resources it uses are statically assigned. You can configure this partition without shutting it down.
  • Shared Processor LPAR (SPLPAR): This partition type can be dynamically configured. The CPU resources it uses are not statically assigned, but they are allocated from a pool of available CPUs.


Certified data sources

The certified data sources for these views are as follows:

  • BMC - TrueSight Capacity Optimization Gateway VIS files parser
  • BMC - TrueSight Operations Management extractors

You must configure and run one of these ETLs to import data into the view. For more information, see BMC - TrueSight Capacity Optimization Gateway VIS files parser and  BMC - TrueSight Operations Management 10.7/11.0/11.3 Generic extractor.

If you are importing data from an ETL module other than the certified data source, make sure that the ETL imports all the metrics so that the view shows the correct data.

Data visibility

The AIX view displays data for all systems of the following types:

  • Virtual Machine - AIX LPAR
  • Virtual Host - AIX LPAR
  • Resource Pool
  • Virtual Machine - AIX Shared Processor LPAR
  • Virtual Machine - AIX VIO LPAR
