PLM Configuration

  • PLM is a "policy" based tool and is configured by editing policies defined for managing and/or monitoring groups of LPAR's

  • Individual Policies are typically maintained for each managed server

    • LPAR's on a managed server are usually grouped within a policy
    • Groups normally consist of "shared" and "dedicated" reflecting the CPU assignments for each LPAR
  • The policy files may be edited by multiple methods:

    • Command line editing of policy files in "/etc/plm/policies"
    • WebSM

For assistance with designing, implementing, and supporting, your automated CPU and Memory allocation and deallocation using Partition Load Manager (PLM), please contact Mt Xia.
