collgui , java interface in 5.1b , multiple cgz files

collgui , java interface in 5.1b , multiple cgz files

Hi..
In the old collgui , I could select multiple files to make views on ex. several days to get a trend of ex. mem usage.
HOW do I do the same in the Java interface ?
Is it supported ?

Best Regards

Re: collgui , java interface in 5.1b , multiple cgz files

Hi Martin,

Regarding your question on collgui v3. I have researched this and do not see an equivalent feature within collgui v3 as previously existed in v2 to select multiple collect data files.
I will go ahead and enter a suggestion Software Product Report (SPR) to engineering asking that functionality be considered for a future release.

One possible solution to this would be to use collect -p and -f options. Take your multiple collect data files and pass them to collect to have collect merge the file in to one larger file.

Example:

# collect -p data1.cgz -p data2.cgz -f data3

Then use the resulting data3.cgz file within collgui.

I hope you find this information useful.

Regards,
Dave Bechtold

Thanks ...
Your suggestion came into mind, and is ok as long as you only look at less than 10 files.

I also used to in v2 to get trending in disk usage and cpu usage, to predict upgrade paths on stable installation.
In that I would select 30 or more files to get a prediction graph.

If you do an SPR, One suggestion could be to be able to start the v3 with * in the filename. ex. : collgui collect*Jun*.cgz .

Thanks for your answer and see you later.

Re: collgui , java interface in 5.1b , multiple cgz files

Hi Martin, Dave

The trick "collect -p A.cgz -p B.cgz -f A+B.cgz" is not always working.

If you run collgui V2 on such a "concatenated" file, you will get an error like GotoLastRec: out-of-sync.

With collgui V3, a window will pop up with a message that the file is not valid.

This problem in collect will be solved with one of the next patch_kits.

If I need to work with multiple inputfiles, I use the good old Version2 collgui.
fi: # collgui May-1[4567].cgz

BTW: It is the shell that expands the wildcards to all the files that fit.

Re: collgui , java interface in 5.1b , multiple cgz files

Tried your solution out.:

It seems that the number of input files can be exceeded.!

Then reducing the number of files to get the BIG file made (50 Mbyte) by collect I tried to use it in collgui:

Can't open archive file, make sure you are root and it s an valid collect archive. !!

So, I stay with V2 on my not so fast old install until further news come up.

See you

Hi Donnie,

The FTP site for Collect is ftp://ftp.digital.com/pub/DEC/collect/ , the older V2 kit I know is there.
