11 MAINVIEW for Linux - Servers Displays Linux and z/vm performance and availability information in realtime and interval time (historical data) frames Provides historical data which allows you to perform trend analysis on the historical performance of your Linux and z/vm systems Provides around 200 different views providing Linux and z/vm performance availability, usage, and configuration information Integrates views from the MAINVIEW family of products Auto-discovery of Linux and z/vm systems Copyright 10/4/2010 BMC Software, Inc 11

12 MAINVIEW for Linux - Servers Provides a view into understanding the Linux system and applications: - Performance - Availability - Supports zseries and Intel Allows you to: - Manage a large number of Linux systems - Define alarm thresholds for event management - Avoid and/or fix problems before they impact your business Copyright 10/4/2010 BMC Software, Inc 12

13 MAINVIEW for Linux - Servers System Metrics System information and statistics - Host name of each Linux system image - Status (inactive or running) - CPU usage - Memory usage - Swap space usage - Average number of processes waiting for CPU service (per second) - Average number of times the run queue is updated during the measurement interval (per second) - Average number of processes ready to run (for 1-, 5-, and 15-minute intervals) - Number of processes running during the measurement interval - Total amount of physical memory in use during the measurement interval Copyright 10/4/2010 BMC Software, Inc 13

14 MAINVIEW for Linux - Servers Process Metrics Processes information and statistics - Process identification number - Process name - Elapsed process time - CPU resources used - Total physical resident memory - I/O rate - Process state - Total virtual memory size - CPU utilization by executing programs and library functions Copyright 10/4/2010 BMC Software, Inc 14

15 MAINVIEW for Linux - Servers File System Metrics File system resources Identifies file systems heavily utilized and running out of space - Path name of the directory - Type of file system - Amount of the file system utilized (percentage) total file system capacity (in kilobytes) free file system space (in kilobytes) used file system space (in kilobytes) - Total number of file system allocation units (in blocks) - Number of free file system allocation units (in blocks) - Number of i-nodes in use (percentage) total number of i-nodes number of free i-nodes number of i-nodes in use Copyright 10/4/2010 BMC Software, Inc 15

16 MAINVIEW for Linux - Servers z/vm Metrics z/vm Performance - CPU utilization - Storage utilization - Resource utilization - Virtual machines - Real devices - Paging and spooling - Privileged operations - Channel Paths - Minidisk and SFS directories - File listing and actions Copyright 10/4/2010 BMC Software, Inc 16

17 MAINVIEW for Linux - Servers Additional Metrics User sessions and processes - Tracks users on the system and identifies which users and processes are placing the greatest demands on system resources Disks and disk usage - Tracks disk I/Os and usage to locate hot (over-utilized) disks Inter-Process Communication (IPC) - Shared Memory Segments - Message Queues - Semaphore Arrays - Action commands Remove shared memory segments Remove message queues Remove semaphore arrays Copyright 10/4/2010 BMC Software, Inc 17

25 Typische Problem Scenarios Linux 1. Linux process using excessive CPU resource. RENICE or KILL 2. Linux file system running out of space. Move/remove unnecessary files Use lvm (Logical Volume Manager) to to expand and shrink file systems 3. Linux process opening too many files. view cflfsysr: reset the 'file-max' numbers 4. Required Linux process inactive or missing. UBBPARM(MMLTSRP0): required Linux daemon processes. 5. Linux process creates core dump file. RC >= 8 in FSLTEST + Automation 6. Linux process causing excessive swapping. Run swapon command to enable additional swap devices/files Copyright 10/4/2010 BMC Software, Inc 25

26 Typische Problem Scenarios z/vm 1. z/vm virtual machine using excessive CPU resource. CP FORCE LOGOFF CP SET SHARE ABSOLUTE LIMITHARD 2. z/vm minidisk running out of space. Get larger minidisk, and move/remove unnecessary files Use SFS (Shared File Systems) to expand and shrink shared file system by adding/removing minidisks to filepools 3. Required z/vm virtual machine inactive or missing. UBBSAMP(MMLVTST2) and VMFTEST view to monitor if required z/vm virtual machines are missing. 4. z/vm virtual machine using excessive VDISK resource.
