IC90096: IBM PUREAPPLICATION SYSTEMS CONSOLE DISPLAYS A NEGATIVE NUMBER FOR THE 'IN USE' VIRTUAL CPU COUNT WITHIN AN ENVIRONMENT PROFILE
A fix is available
Closed as program error.
After deploying a virtual system or virtual application pattern against an Environment Profile in an IBM PureApplication System, the user may observe a negative value in the "Environment limits" section, under the "In use" column of the the "Virtual CPU" row.
If a virtual machine is reconfigured to increase the size of the virtual CPU count while the virtual machine is in STARTED state, the CPU in-use limit in the environment profile is not incremented to reflect the new size of the virtual CPU. This causes the CPU in-use limits to be incorrect. In some cases the CPU in-use limit may be negative as the value is decremented by the new size of the virtual CPU count when the virtual machine is stopped/destroyed. As a result of the incorrect CPU in-use limits, deployments exceeding the configured limits of the environment profile are not enforced correctly.
A virtual machine state of STARTED will not prevent the virtual CPU in-use value in the environment limits of the environment profile from being updated when the virtual CPU size of a VM is changed. It is important to note that existing environment profiles which contain incorrect values for current CPU in-use limit are not corrected by applying this APAR fix. The following additional actions are needed: 1) Discontinue use of any existing environmental profiles with the incorrect values. 2) Create a new environment profile to replace it. 3) Redeploy the instances using the new environment profile.
