I have enabled hourly data datacollection. ( enabled like 2 months back)
however when i run l lslparutil command on hmc it pull only couple of days of data

eg

ssh -l hscroot ioshmc9e   lslparutil -r all   -m PROD-06-9117-MMA-SN10B9592   --startyear 2010 --startmonth 8 --startday 1  --endyear 2010  --endmonth 9  --endday 14


is there any parameter missing which limit for only two day
i also tried with -d option  eg -d 10
it still gives me two days of data

Hi,

this is due to the way lpar utilization data is handled.

Sampling events are initially collected in a snapshot file. This file holds a 24-48 hours worth of data,
and events based on sample rates less than one hour are collected only in the snapshot file.

Data is aggregated hourly to be kept for about 2 months, daily to be kept for about 2 years, and monthly to be kept for about 10 years.

That's just like rrdtools round-robin database works (well, in a way).

Now for the vital part:

There is a parameter "-s [rate]" where [rate] can be "s" for snapshot, and "h", "d", "m" for hourly, daily and monthly, respectively.

You didn't use this parameter in your command, so it defaults to "-s s" which tells lslparutil to report on the snapshot file, which holds, as I said above, only 24-48 hours of data.

In your case, to display data for the last six weeks, just use

ssh -l hscroot ioshmc9e   lslparutil -r all   -m PROD-06-9117-MMA-SN10B9592 -s h --startyear 2010 --startmonth 8 --startday 1  --endyear 2010  --endmonth 9  --endday 14

Now it should be clear that you'd have to use "-s d" to go back for up to 2 years, and "-sm" to go back for up to 10 years.

Sorry for the long and winding explanation, but I was afraid just telling you "Use '-s h' and it will work!" could have left you a bit clueless.
