You can down load the AIX stand-alone diagnostics CD and reformat the drives to 512.

I'm no Linux expert but everything I'm reading there leads me to believe that you can run it standalone without any hosting lpar of IBM i, vios, etc.

subject: Re: Selling a used 520

Anything pre-Power8 runs only big endian linux. All Power machines run Aix
and Linux but only licensed machines run IBM i. To install linux on a
power5 520 you need to have 512-byte x sector disks and not the 522 ones
(you can change the disk in the carrier, just get generic SCSI disks and
linux will see them fine).
You can install OpenSuse or any ppc64 linux distro.
Not having a video card will limit you to the serial console but it can be
done.

Roberto

Thank you.
Is this out of line?

Default interval . . . . . . . . 15.00
This is the default value. It should be OK.
Collection library . . . . . . . QPFRDATA
Default collection profile . . . *STANDARDP
It collects basic parameters, including network usage. It should be OK.
Cycle time . . . . . . . . . . . 000000
Every new *MGTCOL starts at midnight. Fine.
Cycle interval . . . . . . . . . 24
One new *MGTCOL is created every 24 hours. Fine.
*MGTCOL retention period:
Number of units . . . . . . . 00168
Unit of time . . . . . . . . . *HOURS

*MGTCOL objects are deleted from the system 168 hours (7 days) after
their usage for collecting data.
Note that *MGTCOL must be dumped to database file to be analyzed (with
CRTPFRDTA command or with "Create standard database files" set to *YES
during collection). I am not aware of any interface to access *MGTCOL
content.

You could, may be, reduce the retention to 2 or 3 days, as they are
dumped to database members.

Enable system monitoring . . . . *YES
Create standard database files *YES


As far as members...
File . . . . . . QAPMAPPN
Library . . . . QPFRDATA
Member Date

Database members can be removed according to STDDTARET parameter of
CFGPFRCOL. And, If I remember fine, PM/400 processes can also remove
those members depending on CFGPM400 or GO PM400 settings.

Therefore, in my opinion, the size of *MGTCOL is due to your workload.
All the *MGTCOL below look to have the same size per day, around 4,5 GB.
You have 3 collections for 01th of November probably because of some
restricted state (or collecting jobs ended) between 01:00 and 23:00, but
the total is quite 4,5 GB.
The size of the collection of 05th of November is lower than the other
because of the RTVDSKINF snapshot at 04:00.

If the size of QPFRDATA is a concern, you could keep less *MGTCOL.
Usually we keep only two of them, but we make sure to have 40 days of
database members so that we cover one month and more.
