Creating the Configuration

Edit the /etc/project database file. Add entries to implement the required resource controls and to map users to resource pools, then view the file.

# cat /etc/project
user.app_server:2001:Production Application Server:::project.pool=appserver_pool
user.app_db:2002:App Server DB:::project.pool=db_pool;project.cpu-shares=(privileged,1,deny)
development:2003:Test and development::staff:project.pool=dev_pool;
process.max-address-space=(privileged,536870912,deny)keep with previous line
user.tp_engine:2004:Transaction Engine:::project.pool=tp_pool
user.geo_db:2005:EDI DB:::project.pool=db_pool;project.cpu-shares=(privileged,3,deny)

Note - The development team has to execute tasks in the development project because access for this project is based on a user's group ID (GID).

Create an input file named, which will be used to configure the required resource pools. View the file.

# cat
create system host
create pset dev_pset (uint pset.min = 0; uint pset.max = 2)
create pset tp_pset (uint pset.min = 2; uint pset.max=8)
create pset db_pset (uint pset.min = 4; uint pset.max = 6)
create pset app_pset (uint pset.min = 1; uint pset.max = 2)
create pool dev_pool (string pool.scheduler="IA")
create pool appserver_pool (string pool.scheduler="TS")
create pool db_pool (string pool.scheduler="FSS")
create pool tp_pool (string pool.scheduler="TS")
associate pool dev_pool (pset dev_pset)
associate pool appserver_pool (pset app_pset)
associate pool db_pool (pset db_pset)
associate pool tp_pool (pset tp_pset)
modify system tester (string system.poold.objectives="wt-load")
modify pset dev_pset (string pset.poold.objectives="locality tight; utilization < 80")
modify pset tp_pset (string pset.poold.objectives="locality tight; 2: utilization < 80")
modify pset db_pset (string pset.poold.objectives="locality tight;utilization < 80")
modify pset app_pset (string pset.poold.objectives="locality tight; utilization < 80")

Update the configuration using the input file.

# poolcfg -f

Make the configuration active.

# pooladm -c

The framework is now functional on the system.
