The PowerVM Virtualization Performance Advisor diagnoses performance issues within PowerVM partitions. The tool was developed by the IBM Power Systems Virtualization Performance team and is intended to help customers, developers, testers, performance analysts, field engineers and anyone else interested in diagnosing and addressing performance issues within the PowerVM partitions.
The advisor runs within an AIX partition (dedicated or shared), analyzes performance characteristics, and provides a health check report. The user defines how long the tool runs (the tool runs for minimum of 30mins even though user specifies less than 30mins). The health check report includes system configuration (available resources, h/w & s/w levels, etc), partition (type, mode, available resources, s/w levels), partition settings and recommendations to improve performance (e.g. placement, SMT, processor folding, processor, and memory pool utilization).
This guide assumes SSH is already installed, as it always should be.
