CA Automic Sysload
Affects Release version(s): 5
Error Message : None
Patch level detected:Sysload Agent for Unix Product Version: Sysload 5.8.0
Description :The calculation of physc per process seems not to be coherent with the total physc used by the LPAR
OS: IBM AIX OS Version: all AIX
Cause type: By design Root Cause: This is expected behaviour of the agent for AIX.
Sysload stats are coherent with the topas stats, short life processes are not seen either in topas but they contribute to the physc of the system.
