Creating Pools Configurations

    The configuration file contains a description of the pools to be created on the system. The file describes the following elements that can be manipulated.

  • cpu

  • pool

  • pset

  • system

See the poolcfg(8) man page for more information about elements that be manipulated.

    When pools are enabled, you can create a structured /etc/pooladm.conf file in the following ways:

  • Use the pooladm command with the –s option to discover the resources on the current system and place the results in a configuration file. This is the current method to use.

    All active resources and components on the system that are capable of being manipulated by the pools facility are recorded. The resources include existing processor set configurations. You can then modify the configuration to rename the processor sets or to create additional pools if necessary.

  • If necessary for backward compatibility with previous releases, use the poolcfg command with the –c option and the discover or create system name subcommands to create a new pools configuration.

Note -  Only use the poolcfg or libpool command to modify the /etc/pooladm.conf file. Do not directly edit this file.
