- IBM - What's Going Wrong: LPAR Weights
In my job I often look at MONWRITE data from customer systems. Recently I have seen a rash of data showing me CPCs where the LPAR weights were not set correctly. The consequences were less-than-optimal configurations and in some cases just plain poor operation. In this presentation I review basic concepts about LPAR weight, the notion of entitlement, how to recognize configuration problems, and how to correct them. I also point out some techniques, tools, and references that might help.

This session will cover some of the key details and considerations as you look to install or upgrade to z/VM 7.3 and expand your SSI clusters to up to eight members.
