I am having a problem getting Symon to run on my Sparc Ultra 4000.   Every time it Runs I receive all of the Icons as crossed out red circles.  Ther documentation Is not very good.  Can I run the event generator and the monitor on the same machine?   and if so   How do I configure it properly.

1. You need to be running SyMON 1.3 (which still has some problems - mentioned below)

2. You can run your event generator and monitor on the same box (technically speaking), but this is not a good idea. It is best to set up another box that is the event manager.

3. Follow the following steps to install and configure SyMON:
Monitored Host (MH) - the host being monitored E4000
Monitoring Host running Event manager (EH) - some other box

(Assuming you know how to mount the CD, run pkgadd, etc...)
On MH - install the following packages: SUNWsyrt SUNWsys SUNWsyc
On MH - install the following if you want to run the GUI and
need man pages, etc: SUNWsym SUNWsyu SUNWsyua (better to install this)
On EH - install the following packages: SUNWsyrt SUNWsye
On EH - install the following if you want to run the GUI etc: SUNWsym SUNWsyu SUNWsyua

Add the following in your environment on EH and MH
SYMONHOME=/opt/SUNWsymon
PATH=$SYMONHOME/bin:$SYMONHOME/sbin
MANPATH=$SYMONHOME/man
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$SYMONHOME/lib

On MH: (assuming default sampling rate) run the following
# sm_confsymon -s <EH_hostname>
# sm_control start
# uname -i  (this is needed for the command below)

On EH:
# sm_confsymon -e <MH_hostname> -P <uname -i from above>
# sm_control start

To bring up the GUI, run
symon -t <MH_hostname>

4. There are still some outstanding problems with SyMON 1.3
  - RPC connectivity loss between MH and EH (the workaround
    is the restart symon (sm_control start) - This will be
    fixed in SyMON 1.4 which is due out this month.
  - If there are a number of hops (network hops) between the
    EH and MH, or if your increase the default sampling rate
    of 10 secs, the process window of the GUI could be blank
    (This is not fixed in 1.4 - should be fixed in 1.5).

Hope this helps.
