Monitoring tool on HP-UX

Hi all,

What is the most widely used monitoring tool we use on HP-UX for measuring metrics like CPU,Memory,I/O, Virtual memory and networks ? How do we collect historical data from single and different servers to view in single screen ? Is there any tool to view them in web or GUI ?

Thanks,
Manoj

Glance will give your real time stats, Performance Monitor will give you tools to review history.

Both cost $$$ and need to be purchased from your HP reseller.

And no, they're not cheap.

Hi Manoj:

As already noted, 'glance' is probably the best tool for HP-UX. It is architected for and to understand the HP-UX kernel. A nice overview is present in this presentation:

In my option, the price you pay to license 'glance' is worth every penny (or whatever currency you use).

Re: Monitoring tool on HP-UX

There are several primitive tools on HP-UX such as vmstat, top, sar, lanadamin, etc and with a *LOT* of work writing scripts and reading docs to understand how to interpret results, you can probably get what you need. But single screen? Any screen? You've got to wrote a lot of code to present the data. Or you can send the data to a PC and use Excel to create graphs.

Or you purchase the Glance products and look at the nice graphs.

Hi Manoj,

To view real time performance monitoring: HP Glance Plus (Motif GUI and Terminal console)

To get the real time performance data of remote nodes: cpsh and mpadv (Available as part of Glance Plus installation)

To collect the historical system performance data: HP Performance Agent

To view historical data of different servers in a single node: HP Performance Manager (Web Interface)

Re: Monitoring tool on HP-UX

Apropos monitoring, for hardware related monitoring you can use IRSS / SFM together with SMH and HP SIM.

Insight remote support (IRS)
System fault management (SFM)
System management homepage (SMH)
System Insight Manager (SIM)

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Hi Manoj,

If you want better solution go for glance.

If you want cheaper solution use spotlight from quest software.
