Product details and specifications

HPE Process Resource Manager (HPE PRM) is a resource-management tool used to control the amount of CPU that processes can use. HPE PRM is an alternate process scheduler that enables you to group processes together and guarantee each group a minimum share of the total CPU time. It consists of a configuration file and a command line interface to help you create and manage workgroups of users, allocate CPU for each workgroup (and the associated users), monitor the actual performance, dynamically change CPU allocation for workgroups, and move processes from one workgroup to another.

The PRMSIMTools is integrated with HPE Virtualization Manager, a component of the HPE Virtual Server Environment (VSE). Virtualization Manager provides a graphic visualization of resource partitions, enabling you to monitor and configure PRM groups through a point-and-click interface.

What is in the PRMSIMTools bundle?

The PRMSIMTools bundle provides an HPE Process Resource Manager (PRM) graphical user interface using which you can plug-in to the HPE Systems Insight Manager (SIM).

To access the PRM interface in the SIM:

  1. Install the PRMSIMTools bundle version C.03.04 or later on your system.
  2. Skip this step if HPE Virtual Server Environment (VSE) Management Software is not installed on your system.
    If HPE VSE Management Software Version A.03.00.00 or later version is installed on your system, then run the command and skip to step 4:
    /opt/vse/bin/vseinitconfig -a
  3. Run the command:
    /opt/prm/bin/prminitconfig -a
  4. Navigate to Optimize -> Process Resource Manager -> Configure PRM Groups on HPE SIM.

This interface enables you to monitor and control systems running HPE PRM C.03.04 or later.
