For those which would like either test LPAR2RRD without its installation or for performance tuners working on customers site where is not available any reasonable CPU monitoring can be useful this LPAR2RRD remote functionality.
When you provide here data collected from the HMC/IVM then you will get this data graphed.
Bellow is described how it works.
Follow the link which will appear after processing as a starting point to your graphed data.
Enable utilization data collection for your servers on the HMC/IVM via :
$ chlparutil -r config -s 60 (under hscroot/padmin priviliges)
This cmd enables utilization data collection for all systems attached to that particular HMC/IVM with sample rate 60sec.
Note that for 60 sec rate HMC/IVM stores utilization data only for last 2 days, so you will get graphed maximally just last 2 days.
Let run utilization data collection for some time to have some data
Download a Perl script from here : hmcget.pl (right click and save link as hmcget.pl)
Start this script from whatever unix server (not directly from the HMC/IVM) with Perl like :
$ perl ./hmcget.pl
It takes 48 hours back data, optionally you can specify less like here for last 5 hours:
$ perl ./hmcget.pl 5
The script will ask for:
You will be prompted to type a password couple of times.
HMC/IVM user name (use whatever username, it might be hscroot/padmin on the target HMC/IVM)
For security reasons I recommend to create temporary account with hmcviewer restricted rights on the HMC/IVM like :
$ mkhmcusr -u lpar2rrd -a hmcviewer --passwd abc1234 # HMC based
$ mkuser -attr pgrp=view lpar2rrd; passwd lpar2rrd # IVM
The script collects utilization data and saves it into data.txt into local directory.
Gzip & uuencode data via this cmd line :
$ gzip -9 data.txt; uuencode data.gz < data.txt.gz > data.txt.gz-uu
Use data.txt.gz.uu as the input file for this form:
Each run will be under independent location, this assure privacy of graphed data.
If you get an error then snap the screenshot and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org
Web pages created by this application will be automatically removed from the web server after 2 days.
If you want to keep it then use for example wget to download all the web content in once.
You might stop utilization data collection now on the HMC/IVM via :
$ chlparutil -r config -s 0 (under hscroot/padmin priviliges)
This application might not be available 24x7.
It does not support SDMC, just HMC or IVM managed servers.
