Re: VMSTAT OUTPUT WITH DATE & TIME

Hi Omprakash,

For time

vmstat -t

-t
Prints the time-stamp next to each line of output of vmstat. The
time-stamp is displayed in the HH:MM:SS format. Note: Time stamp
will not be printed if -f, -s, or -i flags are specified.

My example for daily 8 hour with date in filename :
vmstat -t 1 28800 >/home/db2inst1/nncron/vmstats/nnVmstat8h_`date +%Y
%m%d"-"%H%M`.log

Or check the manpage

man vmstat

Re: VMSTAT OUTPUT WITH DATE & TIME

there is no such option with vmstat in hp-ux. you can redirect to its output in a file with a counter and interval options.

Shalom,

If the man page for vmstat can not do this for you then try a script like this:


while true
do
vmstat >> ouptut
date >> output
done
