I get the following:

# lparstat -i
Node Name                                  : p8d
Partition Name                             : AIX
Partition Number                           : 2
Type                                       : Dedicated-SMT-4
Mode                                       : Capped
Entitled Capacity                          : 8.00
Partition Group-ID                         : 32770
Shared Pool ID                             : -
Online Virtual CPUs                        : 8
Maximum Virtual CPUs                       : 8
Minimum Virtual CPUs                       : 8

Open in new window


In this context can I assume there is one processor and 8 cores?

Thanks

You can assume that the LPAR has 8 virtual cores assigned to it.
The number of real cores in the whole machine is under "Active Physical CPUs in system".

"Entitled Capacity 8.00"  means that the LPAR is capped to use a maximum of 8 cores.
"Dedicated" means that the cores are for exclusive use by that LPAR.
