WPAR vs LPAR

Hello

Till now, We installed an app on LPAR  in /opt file system, to monitor the detailed Disk/CPU/Mem metrics of LPAR.
We get the metrics by calling system api's or commands on LPAR

Now,
In AIX 6.1 WPAR
Does it make sense to install the same app on WPAR? Basically to monitor the same metrics on each  WPAR?


Becasue WPAR shares the same LPAR resources, do a bit confused

It depends on which commands/APIs you use.

If these commands or APIs are WPAR aware (we've been disussing this in another thread) it might well make sense running them inside of a WPAR - if you're really interested in WPAR specific resource consumption.

Just keep in mind that the values measured in the global environment ("LPAR") include the values measured inside the WPARs.

Most (if not all) WPAR specific values can also be measured from the global environment - the relevant commands would accept the "-@ wparname" flag, which would lead to measuring just the resource consumprion of the respective WPAR.
For example "topas -@ wpar1" issued from the global environment would yield the same results as "topas" alone issued from inside wpar1.


Couldn't it be that your application (which one is it?) can be tailored to measure these WPAR specific values along with the global values?
