Performance monitoring

As a pert of the regular performance monitoring, I have done this time through HP's OVPM (HP's Open View Performance Manager) and I have couple of graphs for this with various variants in it.

I have attached a screen shot of one of the Test boxes.Can any Guru brief me on the readings and Interpretations plz.

Re: Performance monitoring

Not sure what you need to know. The CPU and network are used periodically. CPU time is minor (25% peak), network simply indicates that data is being transferred. 1500 pkts/sec is busy but not saturated unless this is a 10 Mbit (archaic) card. It certainly is not a busy system. If you are curious about the repeating curves, you'll need to look at the program(s) that are running at that time.

Re: Performance monitoring

thanks for the reply Bill,

I am worried about the Pink and Brown lines which are particularly High.

I also have one another box where the Mem. Page out Rate is very High.Does that mean anything.

Re: Performance monitoring

I have a box with the following values :

CPU Utilization - 5%
Peak Disk Utilization - 5%
Swap Space Utilization - 1%
Run Queue Length - 2.00
Memory Page Out - 6.00
Network Input Packet Rate - 15.00
Network Output Packet Rate - 8.00
Active Processes - 14.00

Memory Utilization - 30%
User Memory Utilization - 23%
System & Cache Memory Utilization -10%
Cache Hit Percent - 100%
Swap Out Rate - 2.00
Page Out Rate - 6.00
Page Scan Rate - 2.3

What does that mean... what do I understand from those values ??
Why are some of them measured in Percentage and some in Decimal??

I will also like to open a new thread to understand the terminology.
