Employs Plan Management View which Shows CPU Utilization at Zone Level August 22, 2012,
Volume 174, Issue 4
In a procedure replete with code samples and screen shots, Laura Hartman outlines the steps necessary to create and configure an Oracle Solaris 11 non-global zone from the Plan Management View of Enterprise Manager Ops Center 12c. The zones created with this procedure will have these characteristics, Hartman writes:
SAN storage is used for the zone and NAS storage is used for the zone metadata.
The zone is installed from the Oracle Solaris 11 Software Update library. When installed from this repository, the default software group (solaris-small-server) uses less space than when installed from an OS image.
One can also you can add the zone to a server pool and use the zone migration feature. Hartman advises that the zone is available for use as a separate operating system and that one can employ actions in the user interface to manage the zone and perform operations, such as rebooting and halting the operating system. It is possible to manage a zone's performance, including viewing the CPU utilization at the zone level, with the OS Analytics feature. One can also reuse the Oracle Solaris Zones deployment plan to quickly add zones when and where needed.
