Finally, I got the invite to join the Power Champions. Three days of news and information before today's announcements . It has been quite an experience - finally hearing the news directly from the developers, project managers, etc. rather than only reading several stack of slides.
Biggest surprise for me is that there may something "ready-to-go" to monitor my Power I/O busses, per partition.
The solution: a very small IBM i partiton - as IBM i already knows how to converse with the PHYP (Power Hypervisor) and collect the data.
Not really surprising that IBM i already can, while AIX cannot - the Power Hypervisor has it's origins from the AS400 Supervisor.

Anyway - more to come as fast as I can write about it - on many of the announcements out now !
