Re: shifting application from idle cpu to another

Unix will do this for you. If you have a "BAD" cpu (which I'm not sure how one can tell), then get it fixed. If you don't you will experience some serious system failures.

You can use "nice" to change the priority of a process, or you can purchase Workload Manager & PRM(from hp).

Re: shifting application from idle cpu to another

Unless you specifically use processor affinity or resource managers you cannot exercise control over which cpu to use.
There is rarely a BAD cpu condition which the system has not detected and system may continue to run. Most vendors WILL panic a system on bad CPU because you do not want to risk data corruption. So the system will not come up unless you fix the hardware.
