AIX Native Plugins
Unfortunaly there are not that much check plugins for AIX. Further almost all of them use other programs to access performance data. Therefore I was inspired by Perfstat API Programming from IBM to change those issues.
Please feel free to send me an email to email@example.com if you have any questions.
I have implemented three checks:
They are compiled as follow:
xlC -lperfstat -o check_lpar_cpu check_lpar_cpu.cpp xlc -lperfstat -o check_network_io check_network_io.c xlc -lperfstat -o check_disk\io check_disk_io.c
To use check_lpar_cpu properly, you have to enable one feature over HMC. This is shown in picture hmc_lpar_setting.png
If you compile the plugins on AIX Version 6100-06-04-1112 they will not work on AIX with lower versions.
