IBM LPAR Processor Issue (EC vs vCPU)
Posted on 2014-09-11
I have an LPAR and processor settings are as follows..
Available system processing units: 9.8
Available system processing units
(with releasable amount from other partitions): 9.8
Minimum Processing units : 0.1
Minimum Virtual Processors units : 1
Assigned Processing units : 1.4
Assigned Virtual Processors units : 4
Currently My CPU is pegged and on my TOPAS, I see that the ec% is 1400+ and CPU is 200% and I want to add more resources.
So here is my question :
1. Does it make sense to add more virtual processing units like increase 4 to like 8
2. Does it make sense to increase the Assigned Processing Units from 1.4 to 4
So please suggest....
