The Robot/LPAR interface lets users set a base level for memory and/or processor resources in a partition, move memory and processors between partitions to adjust levels, and fine tune settings, and display the current resource levels and settings.
Robot/LPAR also moves IOA and IOP devices, including tape drives and optical drives, between partitions. Users can move these resources interactively using the Robot/LPAR green screen menus, in batch, or schedule the movements using a job scheduler such as Robot/SCHEDULE, the System i batch job management software. Because Robot/LPAR interfaces directly with the HMC, response is fast and movements occur quickly. Add Robot/NETWORK, the System i network management software, and users can automate the entire process of resource adjustment and movement throughout a network of managed systems.
Robot/LPAR is easy to configure, set up, and maintain, the company says. Users can activate or shut down partitions, view the current status of the managed system and its partitions, and maintain audit log file data of resource movement activities. Robot/LPAR can be installed on multiple partitions within a managed system at no additional cost.
