IBM AIX Monitoring
Monitoring AIX Made Easy
Applications Manager monitors the performance of IBM AIX Systems. First, Applications Manager discovers each AIX machine and then monitors the CPU activity, complete memory utilization, and local and remote system statistics.
The AIX Management feature optimizes AIX system performance, delivers comprehensive management reports and ensures availability through automated event detection and correction. Applications Manager also monitors processes running in the AIX system.
Some of the components that are monitored in IBM AIX are:
||Monitor CPU usage - check if CPUs are running at full capacity or are they being underutilized.
||Avoid the problem of your windows system running out of memory. Get notified when the memory usage is high (or memory is dangerously low).
|Disk I/O Stats
||specifies read/writes per second, transfers per second, for each device.
||Maintain a margin of available disk space. Get notified when the disk space falls below the margin. You can also run your own programs/scripts to clear disk clutter when thresholds are crossed.
||Monitor critical processes running in your system. Get notified when a particular process fails.
IBM AIX Monitoring Capabilities
- Out-of-the-box management of IBM AIX availability and performance.
- Monitors performance statistics such as CPU utilization, memory utilization, disk utilization, Disk I/O Stats and response time.
- Mode of monitoring includes Telnet and SSH.
- Monitors processes running in AIX systems.
- Based on the thresholds configured, notifications and alarms are generated if the AIX system or any specified attribute within the system has problems. Actions are executed automatically based on configurations.
- Performance graphs and reports are available instantly. Reports can be grouped and displayed based on availability, health, and connection time.
- Delivers both historical and current AIX performance metrics, delivering insight into the performance over a period of time.
- Monitors memory usage and detects top consumers of memory.
