I work on a large number of UNIX boxes and I know you have performace view but I would like for you to add a SAR and NMON grapher.
I work on a large number of UNIX based machines and I know you have an application called performance view which is what I am basing ths request on. I don't know if you have a performance counter for LINUX/UNIX based machines on that application but...
I would like to have a SAR and NMON graphing utility that would be able to do the following
be able to graph live performance on any LINUX, AIX, or HP-UX machine That I currently have a connection to.
Second be able to continue monitoring that machine even after I closed the connection I had open.
Third I would like to have the utility also be able to go out to a Linux, AIX, ou HP-UX machine and grab the correct SAR or NMON data right off the machine and graph it based on a date I as the user provides. so If I tell it to grab the data for the 13th it will understand that I want it to get /var/log/sa/sa13 and graph it.
Fourth It should also be able to take either a sar or nmon file given it and create a series of graphs with it.
It would be awesome if you and your team could create this type of view.
nmon and Sar are processes that record and collect data for all aspects of a Linux system. this includes all the CPU, memory, networking, disks, swaps space and just about everything else. the information that these processes store can be turned into graphs and displayed inside of royal TS just like the process viewer does for windows servers. there are a couple of different tools available to allow you to graph nmon in either a excel spreadsheet or in a java based application but I really think it would benefit your company to add that functionality into royal TS and make your tool the ultimate one stop shop sort of speak.
We have to look into it. Can you provide some information what exactly you are looking for? Especially if you know of any SDKs/APIs available on Windows to pull that data from Unix boxes...
Hi Stefan, Any chance at all that your team might consider creating something for the UNIX/LINUX environment that can monitor systems like performance monitor does for windows?
The performance view only displays Windows performance counter. We do not have anything for UNIX/Linux based performance measurement.
Does performance viewer work with Linux/UNIX machines or is it simply Windows machines that it can create graphs for?
