Multiple QoS Value Calculations

We are currently working with the IBMVM probe to gather metrics from our various 500 AIX/Linux LPARS. The primary metric we are interested in is the CPU Units used per frame.  These metrics are associated by LPAR, so for example LPAR1 has .50 and LPAR2 has 1.5.  With this it means they are using 2 CPU Units per LPAR.  What I would like to do in a graph is show that total.  Is there a way to add multiple QoS metrics together into one value?  The ideal graph for me would be on having a max value of the available CPU Units, with the metric being a total of CPU Units used of all the LPARs.

I would also like to note that in case others have been wondering about this probe, it's working rather well.
