In SLES 11, you can allocate resources to a virtual partition in a planned environment. The IWM system has no options for virtual partitions.

You can change the resource allocation between multiple partitions and set fixed limits to prevent the partition from exceeding its allocation. If there are multiple planned environments, you can allocate a different level of resources for each planned environment. Resource consumption may differ from the allocation, based on activity on the system.

  1. Edit or create a ruleset.
  2. From the ruleset toolbar, click Workloads.
  3. Click the Partition Resources tab.
  4. Drag the border of a partition in either direction to adjust the resource allocation for the partition.

  5. To the right of a planned environment, click to edit the resource allocation for the planned environment.
    1. Set a percentage of resource allocation for each virtual partition in this planned environment. Total resource allocation must equal 100%.
    2. In Teradata Database 14.10, select the Enforce as a Fixed Limit check box for any virtual partition in this planned environment. Fixed limits restrict CPU and I/O in this virtual partition in this planned environment.
    3. Click OK.
  6. [Optional] Adjust the resource allocation for additional planned environments.
  7. Click Save.
