Re: server health check

Shalom,

Many use third party products like openview ITO or hobbit to monitor system health.

Check:
bdf # for full filesystems
swapinfo -tam # for excessive swap allocation
vmstat # for excessive paging
/var/adm/syslog/syslog.log # for relevant errors and hardware failures.

Re: server health check

hi,

we used ISEE for HW problems, and when the HP stoped this services, we switched fully to the nagios.

we are able to monitor HW/OS/services....

Re: server health check

Hi rkumar,

We also use nagios, this is an open source tool for monitoring. It is capable for monitoring almost anything that is scriptable. It has a lot of pre-defined plugins for many platforms. See here some example plugins for HP-UX:

Ok BTW, as of i know, below parameters are considered for the Health Check Report

1) CPU (uptime)
2) mem utilization
3) FS utilization

Re: server health check

rkumar,

A quick answer would be:
1. Check dmesg & /var/adm/syslog/syslog.log & /var/opt/resmon/event.log for any error or warnings.
1.1 : check system load: # uptime
2. check # bdf | grep vg00 # for any possible filesystem 100% alert.
3. check lan interfaces/ ping statistics // check GSP logs: PS , Chasis logs.
