Output from sar

Hi

Does anyone have an idiots explination of sar outputs on an item by item basis.

I have just done a report which is now going to the IS board and I have been requested to explain every single output from sar at a very basis level - Oh Dear.

This in itself is not a problem but will take time of which I do not have at the moment.

Thanks in advance

Paula

Re: Output from sar

Hi

Thanks this the information I put in the report for each and every one of sar outputs,
but I need in in a "this little piggy went to market" format.

The IS board can only just spell conputer.

Take it easy!

Re: Output from sar

Hi Paula,

if the board are computer illiterates, why give them a complex report they can't understand. Give them a simplified report:
average cpu load 80% : OK
avg disk 1 load : 20% OK
avg disk 2 load : 90% : needs hardware/software tuning, spread of I/O, or additional hard disk
etc......

You're the specialist they pay for all that mumbo jumbo, they just want clear facts.

good luck,
Thierry.

Hello Paula,

Thierry is pretty good on the point with his answer, and for the "details" give them a copy of the O'Reilly book on "Performance & Tuning"...

Merry X-mas,

Re: Output from sar

Hi paula,

I ran into a similar problem at a previous job.
Like Manoj pointed out, i used Sarcheck, which was good enough. But:

Then, i went the perfview route!! It is the best bet for
presenting info to the management folks. Get a colour printer, print the charts from Perfview and you make everbody happy.

More colourful the better.

cheers
