    Sysload Agents for Operating Systems


    Please note that this agent does not exist as such. The document groups diagnostic metrics exposed by System Agents (Agent for Windows, Agent for Unix, Agent for OS400).

    Please refer to the specific documents of each system agent to see the definition of the associated metrics.

    In the attached document you will find the definitions of the following metrics:

    • Saturation Diagnostic > Overall
    • Saturation Diagnostic > Processor
    • Saturation Diagnostic > Memory
    • Saturation Diagnostic > Disks
    • Saturation Diagnostic > Disk Specific
    • Saturation Diagnostic > Network
    • Saturation Diagnostic > Network Specific
    • Usage Diagnostic > Processor
    • Usage Diagnostic > Memory
    • Usage Diagnostic > Disks
    • Usage Diagnostic > Network
    • Usage Diagnostic > Network Specific
    • Usage Diagnostic > Application

    Sysload Agents for UNIX & Linux


    The agent monitors the Unix and Linux servers. An agent represents a Monitored Object, (the server on which the agent is installed).

    Note: In addition to the indicators listed below, the agent exposes diagnostic metrics. Refer to the "Agents for Operating Systems" document for a complete description of these metrics.

    Important: The agent exposes a common list of metrics for each Unix and Linux server. The availability of the metric depends on the distribution of the operating system. See "Agent for Unix, Administrator Guide" for details on the availability of metrics by OS type.

    In the attached document you will find the definitions of the following metrics:

    • Processor activity > Overall
    • Processor activity > Specific
    • Memory utilization > Overall
    • Cache activity > Overall
    • Disk activity > Overall
    • Disk activity > Average per disk
    • Disk activity > Specific
    • Network interface > Overall
    • Network interface > Specific
    • IP, TCP & UDP protocols > Overall
    • NFS activity > Server
    • NFS activity > Client
    • Connections analysis > Overall
    • Connections analysis > Remote
    • Connections analysis > Local
    • IPC analysis > Overall
    • File System > Specific
    • User > Specific
    • User (short name) > Specific
    • Application > Specific
    • Application (short name) > Specific
    • Workload > Specific
    • Workload (short name) > Specific
    • Storage Space Monitoring > Specific
    • Virtualization - IBM > CPU Pool
