Rhishabh, is your customer's system partitioned?
And do you know how many processors are activated?

I like to use the Performance Capabilities Reference found at http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/i/advantages/perfmgmt/resource.html to look up CPW ratings (see Appendix C) and find lots of other useful information. This reference has just been updated for POWER7.

However we would still need to know how many CPUs are active in the customer's LPAR, if partitioned.

I'm happiest when customers take advantage of the free IBM service
"PM for Power Systems" (see: http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/power/support/perfmgmt/activation.html to activate it.) This collects and summarizes performance data from your iSeries by LPAR. It will tell you how many CPUs are allocated to the LPAR and how many CPW are available and are being consumed. I can't remember which reports are free and which are fee but http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/power/support/perfmgmt/index.html will show you sample reports.
