For Instructions
Enable or disable resource pools.
Activate or disable resource pools on your system.
Enable or disable dynamic resource pools.
Activate or disable dynamic resource pools facilities on your system.
Create a static resource pools configuration.
Create a static configuration file that matches the current dynamic configuration. For more information, see Resource Pools Framework.
Modify a resource pools configuration.
Revise a pools configuration on your system, for example, by creating additional pools.
Associate a resource pool with a scheduling class.
Associate a pool with a scheduling class so that all processes bound to the pool use the specified scheduler.
Set configuration constraints and define configuration objectives.
Specify objectives for poold to consider when taking corrective action. For more information on configuration objectives, see poold Overview.
Set the logging level.
Specify the level of logging information that poold generates.
Use a text file with the poolcfg command.
The poolcfg command can take input from a text file.
Transfer resources in the kernel.
Transfer resources in the kernel. For example, transfer resources with specific IDs to a target set.
Activate a pools configuration.
Activate the configuration in the default configuration file.
Validate a pools configuration before you commit the configuration.
