What is the most widely used monitoring tool we use on HP-UX for measuring metrics like CPU,Memory,I/O, Virtual memory and networks ? How do we collect historical data from single and different servers to view in single screen ? Is there any tool to view them in web or GUI ?
Solved! Go to Solution.

Both cost $$$ and need to be purchased from your HP reseller.
And no, they're not cheap.

Glance is the BEST, and widely used monitoring tool in HP-UX for CPU, memory,I/O, virtual memory and netoworks.

As already noted, 'glance' is probably the best tool for HP-UX. It is architected for and to understand the HP-UX kernel. A nice overview is present in this presentation:
In my option, the price you pay to license 'glance' is worth every penny (or whatever currency you use).

Or you purchase the Glance products and look at the nice graphs.

To view real time performance monitoring: HP Glance Plus (Motif GUI and Terminal console)
To get the real time performance data of remote nodes: cpsh and mpadv (Available as part of Glance Plus installation)
To collect the historical system performance data: HP Performance Agent
To view historical data of different servers in a single node: HP Performance Manager (Web Interface)

HP-UX provides the nettl command to perform network tracing and logging. By default, a basic level of tracing and logging is activated at boot time:
# nettl -status
All Subsytem Tracing:
# nettl -start
Initializing Network Tracing and Logging...
# nettl -traceon all -entity all -f /manoj/mytrace
# nettl -stop
And yoÄ±u can read via formatted output with netfmt

This is the best answer i can give. Glance and gpm are the best real time monitoring tools. Perfview and MeasureView are good Data Collection performance tools. ipcs/ipcrm, mount, nice/renice are good performance administration tools. So it depends on what kind of monitoring you want to do.

Sightline Systems collects much more than the basics that you mentioned for HP-UX and offers configurable data retention polices for keeping your historical data. The browser based console (EDM) allows you to visualize data from different systems on one screen.
