Error Message :
The renamed CPU Pool appears twice in the Shared CPU Pool table

When renaming a CPU Pool (change of case), in the Console, the data for the new names is well historized. 

The old names are still present and the data no longer appears in the Sysload Portal.
OS Version: N/A
Cause type:
By design
Root Cause: The Monitor multiple processor pools name is case sensitive
Follow these steps to purge the old :
  1. Stop the Agent for PowerVM (Collector & File Server)
  2. Backup the history files (*.IDX & *.DAT).
  3. Connect with the same user on the server 
  4. Go to the directory‘<sysload_homedir>/tools’.
  5. Run the 'sld_purge' command on the history files
  • Rename SP_Oracle (Old name : SP_Oracle / New name SP_ORACLE)
$ ./sld_purge -hst_file ./../POWERVM-SERVER-001 -by_entity
Sysload history type (longterm / finegrained) [ longterm ] :
Sysload history save filepath (without extension) [ ./../POWERVM-SERVER-001_save ] :
