I think I'm seeing something new on the processes screen for AIX hosts. There is a new line item called "wait", which is not really a process. I'm thinking it has to do with CPU wait for an LPAR based on the business and entitlements in it's AIX frame.
Can I get a confirmation as to what this "wait" process is that is reported on AIX LPARs?
Thanks in advance.
Not 100% sure about this, but cpu % consumption of "wait" process(es) +/- corresponds to Idle consumption in CPU Usage screen. So it seems that "wait" process cpu consumption in Consuming processes screen is improperly identified as part of real CPU usage.
I would like to understand more. Please have a look at the below combinations.
I had the same question and the "process" wait on Dynatrace aggregates all the "waits" of the server (one for each cpu).
You can check the total of "Worker Process" and it corresponds to the result of the command :
$ ps augc | grep wait
