This portal is to open public enhancement requests against IBM Power Systems products, including IBM i. To view all of your ideas submitted to IBM, create and manage groups of Ideas, or create an idea explicitly set to be either visible by all (public) or visible only to you and IBM (private), use the IBM Unified Ideas Portal (https://ideas.ibm.com).
We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:
Start by searching and reviewing ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted, and add a comment, vote, or subscribe to updates on them if they matter to you. If you can't find what you are looking for,
Post an idea.
Get feedback from the IBM team and other customers to refine your idea.
Follow the idea through the IBM Ideas process.

Can you please elaborate on the proposal. I am not sure about shared processor pool level limit. Any partition level limits cant meet the requirement. Again, what we want is to avoid the situation where we use all capacity in a host group and no room for planned or unplanned maintenance. we can do webex if needed or call me directly.
Partition level or shared processor pool level limits can still be used to control the utilization of the partition such that the overall utilization doesn't go beyond the desired limit. can you please let us know if there are any challenges with that approach?
Yes, the requirement is to have an option to enable/disable x% of the CPU/Memory so that we can control the total utilization of individual frame below 80/90% in the event of workloads moving from other frames while hardware maintenance or capacity add or organic growth
PEP2.0 concept is to have all resources activate on the system , but usage is tracked and metered based on utilization. In this specific use case, can you let us know if there would be use case to enable the disabled CPU/memory later ? i.e. like PEP1.0, would the use case be enable the activated capacity at a later point of time?
