Re: linux equivalent to glance

Richard,

I'm afraid you're stuck with Top, Sar, vmstat, and all the other old standbyes - I've never heard of a Linux Glance.

Re: linux equivalent to glance

It doesnt have to be a glance or even an HP product. Just any util that will do basicly the same things as glance.

Re: linux equivalent to glance

There is no port.

You can get some of the information from the top command, some of the information from the sar command.

Here is a sar script that collects data and can be adapted to Linux.

Re: linux equivalent to glance

I have asked this particular question previously when talking to people at HP's marketing, the questions become:

1.Which Linux,

2. How much can we charge for an application on a free Operating System.

Until these questions are answered, I doubt an HP version of Glance would ever be developed much less released or marketed.

Clearly It is a financial question, what would it take to be worth HP's money, and what is the financial return.

Re: linux equivalent to glance

Hi
we have tried sar,bonnie and other built in commands. But I have yet to find something to give me the equivalent to the glance output of "Disk IO Rate" and the "Disk Report"

Re: linux equivalent to glance

Richard,

I wonder if this question is dated or you have asked HP support about this and found out something, or *I* don't understand your question at all :) -

GlancePlus (Ver 4) is available now and only on linux.

here's a doc which talks of this -

HTH.

Re: linux equivalent to glance

I doubt it. You may get bits and pieces of glance functionality for Linux but not the whole thing. Did you try searching ..
http://rpmfind.net
ie the Linux rpc resources. They are a lot of rpm package in there and if you spend some time you may find what you need. For example there is a package called "diskcheck" (used to monitor disk space) and depending on your Linux distribution, you can download and install them for your use. I have not look in detail for anything resembling glance.

Re: linux equivalent to glance

Sounds like Ramd has your solution, but I did come up with a couple possibilities, though I don't know how will they would fit your needs. Gnome has something called system-monitor and KDE has something called the info-center.

You earned the bunny. =)

Now can you answer the bonus question.

Re: linux equivalent to glance

as for GUI interfaces you could use some of the following (Using Red Hat Linux)

Gnome system monitor
Guname (system information)
KControl (control center)
KDE System Guard

NOTE: I did note about that glance plus now runs under Linux but the above are also very useful and easy to use.

Re: linux equivalent to glance

I have also gotten it, I want to thank those who also have asked about this product.

I have now got a tool for performance monitoring / tuning advising on linux.

My sales contacts had also forgotten about this request.
I am talking about my reseller, not my HP contacts...

Re: linux equivalent to glance

Glance appears to be free (unlike MeasureWare). If you want something a bit more serious to monitor Linux + HP-UX plus 'other' platforms on a console basis, then I use PerfCap PAWZ product (www.perfcap.com). At least I can now do performance analysis + capacity planning. Linux collector and agent is pretty reasonable. I use it on c 500 systems worldwide, including Linux (on VMware).

Re: linux equivalent to glance

While it does not have quite the same feature set as Glance, atop comes close. Besides, it's free.
