Have you used any of system performance monitoring (memory, CPU, I/O, filesystem, etc) tools i.e. HP, BMC, Mercury, etc fir UNIX boxes?   I need to save history data (over 2 or 3 years) for capacity planning purposes.
Any recommendations?

    Assisted Solution

    If you have a tool that can log the usage to a text file, you could plot that data over time.

    For filesystem:
    'df' will tell you disk capacity
    I don't know about CPU and memory - maybe post a pointer in the OS->Unix topic area.

    You could always output the top command to a text file (man top will show you how) periodically depending on your requirements?  Sourceforge always has useful third party utilities also.  I suggest you play around with a couple to see what meets your requirements.

    I am rather looking for an enterprise solution for a very large amount of data.  Budget is not an issue, but the right technology is.
