Process Resource Manager (PRM) kernel fileset

What is the PRM kernel fileset?

The PRM-Sw-Krn.PRM-KRN fileset allows the following products to control system resources from inside the kernel:

  • Process Resource Manager (PRM)
  • Workload Manager (WLM)
  • Global Workload Manager (gWLM)
  • Integrity Virtual Machines

Installing a new version of this fileset requires a system reboot. To minimize the need for reboots, this fileset is kept in a bundle of its own and is revised only when absolutely necessary.

The PRMKernelSW bundle contains the PRM-Sw-Krn.PRM-KRN fileset version C.01.06 or above. Previously, the fileset was in the B7697BA bundle, which is no longer available.
