Richard,

I'm afraid you're stuck with Top, Sar, vmstat, and all the other old standbyes - I've never heard of a Linux Glance.

Re: linux equivalent to glance

It doesnt have to be a glance or even an HP product. Just any util that will do basicly the same things as glance.

There is no port.

You can get some of the information from the top command, some of the information from the sar command.

Here is a sar script that collects data and can be adapted to Linux.

Re: linux equivalent to glance

I have asked this particular question previously when talking to people at HP's marketing, the questions become:

1.Which Linux,

2. How much can we charge for an application on a free Operating System.

Until these questions are answered, I doubt an HP version of Glance would ever be developed much less released or marketed.

Clearly It is a financial question, what would it take to be worth HP's money, and what is the financial return.

Hi
we have tried sar,bonnie and other built in commands. But I have yet to find something to give me the equivalent to the glance output of "Disk IO Rate" and the "Disk Report"

Re: linux equivalent to glance

Richard,

I wonder if this question is dated or you have asked HP support about this and found out something, or *I* don't understand your question at all :) -

GlancePlus (Ver 4) is available now and only on linux.

here's a doc which talks of this -

HTH.

Re: linux equivalent to glance

I doubt it. You may get bits and pieces of glance functionality for Linux but not the whole thing. Did you try searching ..
http://rpmfind.net
ie the Linux rpc resources. They are a lot of rpm package in there and if you spend some time you may find what you need. For example there is a package called "diskcheck" (used to monitor disk space) and depending on your Linux distribution, you can download and install them for your use. I have not look in detail for anything resembling glance.

Re: linux equivalent to glance

Sounds like Ramd has your solution, but I did come up with a couple possibilities, though I don't know how will they would fit your needs. Gnome has something called system-monitor and KDE has something called the info-center.

Ram

You earned the bunny. =)

Now can you answer the bonus question.
Where can I download it? And is it the same as the hp glance that it has a free trial?
