Question:

How to run CDM probe on AIX with a non-root user ?

Answer:

The non-root user has to be part of the "adm" group in AIX to be able to make usage of  “/proc/stat” System API to calculate CPU QOS. Also CPU usage information is found by running the command "/usr/sbin/sar -P ALL" in a separate thread and parsing the data it provides.
