Re: I get CPF9E7F on 9117-MMC P7



fixed

So, for all intents and purposes, if i have 2 OS cpu lics, and make a pool
with 2 cpus, i can have any number of partitions (up to 20) with a max cpu
of 2 each that when uncapped will share those 2 cpus and not go over the
licensed limit.
Good to know.
But this is the exact scenario you are describing, yet the os thinks that
up to 16 cpus are working at the same time, right?

I think that it depends on waht the configuration of the shared prc. pool
is. If you put the 4 LPAR's in a pool with MAX 16 prc, and when each of the
4 LPAR scales beyond 1 CPU then I think that with WRKLICINF you will see 16
prc. usage across all 4 LPAR's in that pool.

On the same topic, i was wondering if 4 IBM i partitions with 1 cpu
assigned each but 4 virtual cpus and uncapped weights would count as 4
procs or 16...

Hi all,

I have very strange issue here and I blame the OS API but just in case
maybe someone has encountered the same issue.

So i have 7 V6R1 LPAR's on 9117-MMC P7 which are in a separate shared
processor pool with max 4 prc. limit to this pool and 4 prc OS
licenses.
WRKLICINF for 5761SS!/V6/5051 shows that the usage limit is 4 but the
usage
count accross all LPAR's is 16 which is not possible for sure because
of
the limitation of the shared pool.

I get CPF9E7F every hour and I'm getting anoyed since my customer
thinks
that this is a BIG issue, which is not :


Message ID . . . . . . : CPF9E7F Severity . . . . . . . : 40
Message type . . . . . : Information
Date sent . . . . . . : Time sent . . . . . . :

Message . . . . : i5/OS usage limit exceeded - operator action
required.
Cause . . . . . : The processor usage limit of 4 processors for
product
5761SS1, license term V6, feature 5051 has been exceeded.
-- Current processor usage across all active i5/OS partitions is
4,00.
-- Current processor usage for the local partition is 1,00.


I checked 100 times that the LPAR is in the correct pool but even then
it
shows the wrong usage across all the LPAR's.

My system is with firmware AM740_100.

I assume that API QSYS/QLZARCAPI is bugged but I can't be sure.

Any clues, PTF or some trick?

Best Regards,

Tsetso
