Solution

ENVIRONMENT:
AIX 5.3 and higher version
Micropartition environment
VERITAS Cluster Server 5.0MP3 installed.

ISSUE:
The following logs continuously show VCS reporting high CPU utilization

/var/log/vx.log
/var/VRTSvcs/log/engine_A.log

The HostMonitor Agent in Veritas Cluster Server 5.0MP3 is misreporting CPU activity in AIX
5.3 micropartition environments.

The HostMonitor Agent is not taking into account PURR statistics to compute CPU usage for AIX partitions.

RESOLUTION:
Please see technote 317244 for workaround and details of the HostMonitor Agent.

Fix for HostMonitor Agent misreporting will be included in VERITAS Cluster Service 5.0MP3RP1 for AIX
