hourly basis statistics for HP-UX

Hi Admins,

Is there any way to find out memory, CPU, disk usage and network traffic statistics in hourly basis for HP-UX?

Configure sar. Check the man page for more info.

Hi Ariyan,

If you have perfstat installed on the system, you can use extract command to get the desired data.

Re: hourly basis statistics for HP-UX

As mentioned before, put those two lines to root crontab.

0 * * * * /usr/lib/sa/sa1
0 23 * * * /usr/lib/sa/sa2 -A

Then you can check the files under /var/adm/sa.

Re: hourly basis statistics for HP-UX

check into setting up statmon for your server. I do not have the exact details but google is your friend.

Re: hourly basis statistics for HP-UX

If you have anything beyond the Base OS, then HP-UX should come with Performance Agent built-in, collecting data automatically. It's much better than sar in my opinion. While it's designed to be integrated with Performance Manager (for which you have to pay), you can use "extract" to get all the information you need, for free.

Good luck

popular open source tool that could help is 'cacti', found here:

Re: hourly basis statistics for HP-UX

cacti is nice, but i prefer PerfView. it is a native HP tool for monitoring performance. it can make more professional graphs than cacti, and all the managers like graphs... ;P
