Partitions Exceeding Entitlement page in the AIX PowerVM view

The Partitions Exceeding Entitlement page in the AIX PowerVM view shows all AIX shared pool logical partitions (SPLPARs) that exceed the allocated entitlement value. If the entitlement is not capped, SPLPARs can exceed their entitlement as long as the resources are available in the pool.

To access the page, select Views > Virtualization > AIX Views > PowerVM, and click the Partitions Exceeding Entitlement tab.
