After you have added pSeries servers (whether managed by an HMC or not) to Uptime Infrastructure Monitor, you can add the individual LPARs from those systems.  While Uptime Infrastructure Monitor collects workload data from all LPARs on a pSeries server that have the Uptime Infrastructure Monitor agent installed (whether they have been added to Uptime Infrastructure Monitor or not), adding LPARs can help you keep track of specific LPARs for workload and service monitoring.

After installing the agent on your LPAR, add it to Uptime Infrastructure Monitor for monitoring with the following steps:

  1. In the My Infrastructure tab, click the name of the pSeries server that contains the LPAR that you want to monitor.  A new window containing information about the system will appear.
  2. Click the Info tab and then click Logical Partitions.  A list of LPARs will appear in the sub-panel.
  3. Click the Add to Uptime button beside the LPAR that you want to add.  The Add System window will appear.
  4. If necessary, you can change any of the following options:
    • Display name in Uptime
    • Description
    • Group
    • Service Group
  5. Click Save to add the LPAR to Uptime Infrastructure Monitor.
It may take up to 15 minutes after adding the LPAR for the Monitoring Station to retrieve enough samples to provide historical graphing data.
