Deprecated feature: The partitioning facility (WPF) feature is deprecated. You can configure partitioning with WebSphere eXtreme Scale.
Move busy partitions to a less busy server
Use the high availability manager Java™ Management Extensions (JMX) commands to move the busy partition from one server to another. Or, use the wpfadmin command. This action will deactivate the partition on the original server and then activate it on the new server (the partition will be offline during this period). Most of the offline time is associated deactivate and activate code processing of the application. As mentioned in the previous on demand logical partitioning (LPAR) section, this does result in an outage for the specific partition. The approach below is preferred over this approach.
