asked on 

aix ibm healthcheck scripts

are there any useful healthcheck tools/scripts/best practice analysers for aix ibm systems? What kinds of parameters do the healthcheck scripts check for? i assume free space is an obvious one, but was interested in what you build into your daily/weekly health checks?

@madunix, are those scripts with the parameters you mention in house written ones or scripts that can be downloaded from the net? are those tools you link to commercial software or freeware?

The above links are commercial software, so contact your local IBM Sales team for POC.

"In our audit reports", I wasnt sure if you meant you wrote your own audit scripts, or those were the things coming from the commercial tools you linked to?

Yes I have my own shell scripts to monitor AIX systems, additionally *nix admins use system management software like above (Tivoli) or Nagios to arrange threshold monitors of memory, cpu, disk ..etc.

As said, Nmon (topas) with nmon analyzer is an excellent tool for performance monitoring. You can use it to monitor as system in case of performance problem, it can be run from crontabs,

i.e. I use usually nmon for my AIX5.3
The following are the nmon steps:
§   Check for the bos.perf.libperfstat package
§   To uncompress the file run uncompress nmon4aix12e.tar.Z
§   tar xvf nmon4aix12e.tar
§   Test the ./nmon
§   ./nmon -f -s 600 -c 144 (data for at least 24h with 10 minutes interval )
