wmp, do you have any healthcheck scripts to identify issues with AIX IBM installations, and what kind of parameters do your scripts/software check for?

Isn't the latter a completely different question?

Anyway, we're running Nagios for monitoring since long so we don't have any elaborated scripts in place anymore.

We use to monitor filesystem filling level (df), system load (uptime), paging space consumption (lsps), paging activity (vmstat), physical CPU consumed by LPAR (lparstat) or non-LPAR (vmstat), network activity (entstat/netstat), MPIO path status (lspath for native MPIO, pcmpath for the sddpcm drivers), NFS mount status (mount), error log entries (errpt, ODM errnotify) etc. etc.

Besides that there is application specific monitoring (processes, filesystems, connectivity, responsiveness, logs ...)

For real-time monitoring try "topas" and "nmon".

You could search here at EE for e.g. "AIX monitoring" or similar and you'll find a lot of info (my contributions included) and also several scripts.

Did my little cron tutorial above help?

Would be great if you could point me in the way of those scripts?
