Logical Domain Software Overview

Logical Domains (LDoms) software enables you to allocate the system resources of your server (such as a boot environment, CPUs, memory, and I/O devices) into logical domains. By using a logical domains environment, you can increase resource usage, improve scaling, and gain greater control of security and isolation

LDoms software enables you to create and manage as many as 128 logical domains, depending on the hardware configuration of the server on which the Logical Domains Manager has been installed. You can virtualize resources and define network, storage, and other I/O devices as services that can be shared between domains.

A logical domain is a discrete logical grouping with its own operating system, resources, and identity within a single computer system. Applications software can run in logical domains. Each logical domain can be created, destroyed, reconfigured, and rebooted independently. There are several roles that logical domains can perform as shown in the following table.

Table 10 Logical Domain Roles

Domain Role
Control domain
Domain in which the Logical Domains Manager runs, enabling you to create and manage other logical domains and allocate virtual resources to other domains. There can be only one control domain per server. The initial domain created when installing LDoms software is a control domain and is named primary.
Service domain
Domain that provides virtual device services to other domains, such as a virtual switch, a virtual console concentrator, and a virtual disk server.
I/O domain
Domain that has direct ownership of and direct access to physical I/O devices, such as a network card in a PCI Express controller. Shares the devices with other domains in the form of virtual devices. You can have a maximum of two I/O domains, one of which also must be the control domain.
Guest domain
Domain that is managed by the control domain and uses services from the I/O and service domains.
