Best Graphing Utility for HP-UX?

Aside from MRTG/RRdtool -- what else can I look at to use for simple graphing (real time and historicals)? My values are simple ordered pairs of values -- cpu pctg, ranges of values paired with UNIX time (epoch seconds).

Re: Best Graphing Utility for HP-UX?



the measureware product will collect the data and then a copy of Performance Manager will graph the data that measureware collects.

You only need 1 copy of PM since it will remotely connect to systems to get the measureware agents.

I recommend gnuplot.

Have you any simple Samples sir?
'Been eyeing GNUplot too but I've no time to study it. Would appreciate if you can have samples.

Re: Best Graphing Utility for HP-UX?

fwiw,

I prefer to do that kind of work on desktop.

For windows I might just pick EXCEL.
Convert the Epoch to an excel date/time:

=((Xn - 6*3600) / 86400) + 25569

Xn = Row/Column
6*3600 = my 6 hour form GMT timezone
86400 = seconds in a day
25569 = 1/1/1970 = start of time... for unix.

Actually, I often grab a toolset I know form OpenVMS land: T4 with its TLviz (Time-Line-Visualizer ) and CSVPNG (CSV file manipulator and PNG graph generator).

Re: Best Graphing Utility for HP-UX?

I basically pull info about the system using the extract utility. I them have a gnuplot script that I run on the data to ouptut png files. I have attached a cpu chart.

here is what is in the gnuplot file I run.

set term png size 1024, 768
set output "~/Desktop/cpu.png"
set size ratio 150
set xlabel "Date\\Time"
set yrange [0:100]
set ylabel "CPU%"
set timefmt "%m/%d/%Y %H:%M:%S"
set xdata time
set grid
plot '~/attachments/global_stats.csv' using 1:3 with lines t "" lt rgb "blue"
set ylabel "Memory%"
set output "~/Desktop/mem.png"
plot '~/attachments/global_stats.csv' using 1:27 with lines t ""

the 1:3 and 1:27 refer to the x and y data to plot. In this case column 1 data is date/time, column 3 is cpu, and column 27 is memory %.

There are plenty of good examples of using gnuplot on the Internet.
