Are you talking about basicly monitoring the HMC?  If so I NEED that ASAP...

Wow, I am perplexed by this request. Monitoring an IBM ecosystem is complex. These are typically very mission critical and are typically managed by specialized people with specialized skill sets. A broad spectrum tool such as SWVM will likely never give you the detail and geek-ness that your AIX system administrators want. We use SW for service level monitoring and then jump quickly to the IBM tool sets when needed.

I created a NPM idea here: http://thwack.solarwinds.com/ideas/3919

Is there any update on this from SolarWinds, this enhancement request has been up for a little over a year.  We are looking to collect stats around physical CPU, so stuff like this LPAR is using .94 CPU's this other one is using 2.43 CPU's

We are continuing to evaluate the opportunity for supporting IBM Virtualization, but there are no confirmed timeframes at the moment.

What IBM tool sets do you use to monitor your PowerVM environment?

@SWI-Product-Managers: do you have some actual information about IBM Virtualization in combine with support?

I think some basic functionality in SRM would be nice, like knowing when there are pathing issues as well as allow mapping of Volumes to LUN's the way VMware Volumes can be mapped to LUN's if you own Virtualization Manager and SRM.  Obviously full detailed monitoring is going to be handled better by specialty tools, but some essential high level features like this would be nice to help identify issues and alert on them.

i guess the answer is "no" 🙂
