CPU Utilization

Hi all,
Does anyone know of any software that manages your cpu and memory utilization?

Thanks,
Michelle

Re: CPU Utilization

Hi Michelle,

Have a look at 'PRM' (Process resource Management) from HP.

http://www.docs.hp.com/hpux/onlinedocs/B8733-90001/00/00/1-con.html

Best regards,

Dan

Re: CPU Utilization

Hi,

If manage=monitor :

You can use glance (disk, lan, cpu, memory, process monitoring) or some command like vmstat "sar -u".

If manage=allocate memory or cpu to a specific process :

PRM is the software you need (but $$$).

Regards,

Patrice

Re: CPU Utilization

Has anyone used it? How does it work? I have an application that is submitted by the same user but has several processes. Could I assign process 1 to 20% cpu and process 2 to 30% and so on.....

Thanks,
Michelle

Re: CPU Utilization

Hi Michelle,

Of course, we're using it.
The document pointed to by the link here above will explain you in details how it works.
Yes, you can limit CPU on a process basis or on a user/group basis, or both.

Best regards,

Dan

Re: CPU Utilization

Hi Michelle

in order to get performance data about each subsystem (cpu,memory,network and so on), graph it, send alarms and analyze trend you could use MeasureWare (and GlancePlus)and PerfView.
With MeasureWare (and/or Glance) you are able to collect metrics representing system workload (like CPU_GLOBAL_UTIL GBL_MEM_UTIL ....)
perfView is able to generate graph with the collected info and analyze utilization trends.
Glance is quite similar to the "top" command but richer of displayed data (not only process but network and ...)

You could test this application (on the HP-UX application CD you could find the trial versions)
