Glance gpm graphs for performance report

Hi ,

 

We have glance plus in our setup.

Can we use glance to extract server performance report ?

gpm gives reports graph wise.

 

I read in forums that glance is used only for Online monitoring , can't we schedule it say to log from so and so date .

 

 

Also we have caliper tool in our setup.

How do we use it ?

caliper is mainly for developers and only gives info on CPU usage.

It is the wrong tool for networking or I/O bottlenecks.

Re: Glance gpm graphs for performance report

 

if you have glance, then you probably also have the performance agent which can be used to produce historical performance reports... try this:

 

cat > /tmp/mw.cfg << EOF
DATA TYPE GLOBAL
DATE
TIME
GBL_CPU_TOTAL_UTIL
GBL_MEM_UTIL
GBL_DISK_PHYS_IO_RATE
EOF

There should now be a file called /tmp/mw.cfg with the above data in it.

 

Now extract data from performance agent using that report template:

 

extract -xp -g -r /tmp/mw.cfg -b FIRST -e LAST -f  /tmp/perfdata_$(hostname).out,Purge

 

That will generate some performance data in a file called /tmp/perfdata_<hostname>.out. Typically the generated files can be up to 3MB in size, so I would have expected that to be OK in /tmp, but obviously the output can be sent somewhere else if required.

 

Look at the man page for the extract command for more details.

Re: Glance gpm graphs for performance report

Hi Duncan ,

We have two setups , out of which one is EO so we have glance plus and meaure installed.

But tohter setup is FOE and there we have only glance and no measureware is installed.

How do i install measureware in FOE ?

 

Will i be able to install from EO DVD ?

 

 

Re: Glance gpm graphs for performance report

the foundation OE does not include licenses for Glance or Measureware (Performance Agent). If you don't have additional licenses for these products on top of your FOE license, you shouldn't be installing them.

Re: Glance gpm graphs for performance report

Hi ,

 

Do we have any other tools which are readily available by default on HP-UX ?

From which we can plot graphs for cpu,memory,disk utilisation .
