Re: HP SiteScope - Number of CPUs on AIX

On multi-processor systems, vmstat averages the number of CPUs into the output. For per-processor statistics, you'll need to use mpstat. 


SiS uses by default vmstat because is most-used command by admins for AIX CPU monitoring, the command that SiS issues displays 2 summaries (CPUs avg)  at 3-second intervals.


You could use this CPU command in a copy of the AIX.config tempate in templates.os (needs to restart SiS to pick up new file in Remote's OS dropdown): 


command=/usr/bin/mpstat 3 2
