How do I define multiple Capacity Planner workloads(UNIX)? |
In Capacity Planner, a workload consists of multiple "workload types." Each workload type can have multiple "tasks" beneath it. Each task represents CPU consumption.|
When you first import the workloads from the ViewPoint trace file, a single workload type, called "System," is created in Capacity Planner. But, within that workload type are several "Tasks," each representing the CPU consumption of a ViewPoint workload type. You can then break these out by creating new Capacity Planner workloads types and "moving" a task to that new type. Breaking up I/O into individual workload types is a bit more difficult, because UNIX does not break up I/Os by ViewPoint workloads. You can move percentages of I/Os from the disks to the new workload types.
After you create your workload types, you can explore what happens if an individual workload type's arrival rate increases.
