Question about CPU Idle with COLLECT

Hi,

I'd like to know if i could do the follwing, with HP-UX OS:

I'd like to get the cpu idle, cpu per cpu, of the server.

I can do "collect -s c" but the file created by collect is unreable (zipped or unzipped with -oz).

Is there another command (like mpstat -P ALL with Linux) to get that information?

Thank you

Re: Question about CPU Idle with COLLECT

I suppose are talking about Tru64 Unix (Not HP-UX).

The collect -sc command will display the information to STDOUT. If you save it to a file (see man collect for activate at startup with rcmgr) you can then "playback" the file with:

collect -sc -p

Por que hacerlo dificil si es posible hacerlo facil? - Why do it the hard way, when you can do it the easy way?

Re: Question about CPU Idle with COLLECT

Actually, I forgot to mantion an important thing.

I have to collect the cpu idle, cpu per cpu, in a shell script.

I tried to do:
collect -sc -R5s -f tmp.dat
collect -p tmp.dat.cgz

But file was unreadable... I don't think I understand, or see, what I have to do.

Re: Question about CPU Idle with COLLECT

The problem maybe is that you specified run time is very low, for example:

collect -f /tmp/collect.out -R15s
collect -sc -p /tmp/collect.out.cgz

Works correctly.
