Hi Juergen, you can still downgrade to 5.x, but we do not support it for fre users. I understand your disappointment, but you have to understand that development and support is not for free, we have to pay developers and other costs. Pricing : premium edition (only edition which covers your big infra) IBM Power 8k USD a year VMware 11k USD a year. 20 % discount if you order both, total 15 200 USD a year regarding your scripting above lpar2rrd data you have mentioned earlier. We can do such scripting for you as part of support sevices. Let me know if you need an official quote. Regards, Pavel

  • you can test version without needs of restriction admin let us know in case you have time for testing Thanks.
  • Hi, upgrade to the latest 7.60, if the problem persist, send us a screenshots and logs Note a short problem description in the text field of the upload form. cd /home/stor2rrd/stor2rrd # or where is your STOR2RRD working dir tar cvhf logs.tar logs tmp/*txt gzip -9 logs.tar Send us logs.tar.gz via…

  • here you can check how to add java into the container
  • Hi, no, Java is not in the container by default, it is against the container ideas. Installing of such 3rd party SW is hard to conteinarized (like you do not where they are installed etc, it could be changed version to version ... ). It makes no sense to prepare env for them in advance. They are mosty not ready to run in…
  • Hi, if we supprtess CDK volumes and there is no others open ones then it will not work. Pool data is based on volume data, so no pools, no volumes then, stor2rrd does not work without them, it expects there are volume and pool perf data.
  • for open systems it is normaly far enough such amount of volumes. In case the storage serves open system volumes and CKD ones, we are able to suppress CKDs to make working at least open system volumes by some internal parameter
  • generally up to 2-3k volumes it works, but no way above, DSCli is not designed for such monitoring we do
  • hmm, 10k+ volumes (typical CKD volumes usage, they are very small and very huge volume amount), DSCcli does not manage to get perf data in reasonable time, it takes hours to get it (10k volumes as per our experince could take about 5 hours), one run, but we need to get it in 15 mins max. No way via DSCli. We are developing…
  • how many of ckd volumes do you have there, like 5k+ this should count it roughly: wc -l /home/stor2rrd/stor2rrd/tmp/IBK_LM2_DS8910F_.ds8perf.scr DSCli is not able to get data from all volumes in reasonable time if volume count is in thousands, it could take hours for dscli to get all we need, but we need it every 5 minutes.
  • we present it as FC errors/sec. If there is 1 error per a minute then it is 1 / 60. You can see in the graph 2 small peaks for fcs5 about 20:30 and 22:20
  • is there any volume defined? If so, send us logs Note a short problem description in the text field of the upload form. cd /home/stor2rrd/stor2rrd # or where is your STOR2RRD working dir tar cvhf logs.tar logs tmp/*txt gzip -9 logs.tar Send us logs.tar.gz via
  • we never seen any error on NPIV adapters. can you show en example? all error counters are always "-1" on NPIV FC adapters (client side) fcstat fcs0
  • great, thanks for letting us know!
  • There might be a problem with vio_daemon stuck or not communicating with HMC (which unfortunately impacts all vioses): It can be also related to resolving the vioses hostname/s, dns. also this might help: Please,…
  • upgrade to the latest 7.61, it shoudl resolve it, let us know if does not
  • just a note for AIX users where does not exist with perl-5.30.3-2 at least. in stor2rrd application directory (/home/stor2rrd/stor2rrd usually) open: vi bin/ and put this behind line: use Storable qw(retrieve nstore); # Bug: Max. recursion depth with nested structures exceeded…
  • send us a screenshot(s) via support at xorux dot com
  • thanks for your info, we will test if cpdumps is done automaticly, if so, we will make necessary updates to exclude necessity of usage restr admin role
  • uncomment this line in lpar2rrd's crontab, wait an hour, reload the web browser then #0,5,10,15,20,25,30,35,40,45,50,55 * * * * /home/stor2rrd/stor2rrd/ > /home/stor2rrd/stor2rrd/load_vspgperf.out 2>&1 --> 0,5,10,15,20,25,30,35,40,45,50,55 * * * * /home/stor2rrd/stor2rrd/ >…

  • Hi, do you say that storwize 8.5.x firmware does not work with our monitoring at all? What is exact problem/error? restricted admin: it is all about cmd "svctask cpdumps" ( ) which requires admin rights. Let us check if it can run under monitoring role under new firmware
  • Hi, I was talking about AIX/Linux/Solaris in terms of "CPU OS", we have no eqvivalent for IBM i without idle cycles. Thanks for the ideas about the idle cycles, we will try to do something with that.
  • BTW any experience how CMC handles capacity allocated to CPU dedicated lpars? Does it count all entitlement (allocation) or actual allocation - idle? Any changes if CPU allocated lpar is in shared (can provide not used CPU cycles to the pool) or non shared CPU mode?
  • ok, then most important metrics in regards of CMC and its pools in terms of IBM payment for overcoming it is CPU allocation (no matter about idles) which we monitoring now. I am right? On the other hand would be handy to have some other sets of graph called like CPU Utilisation (allocation - idle) for another admin view to…
  • so they are 2 different things, I am right? CMC historical report uses allocation - idle CMC pool capacity monitoring uses allocation for checking if you reach the allocated limit
  • Hi, what we present is CPU allocation rather than real CPU utilisation which is always lower. We take into consideration idle unly for CPU dedicated LPARs where it is only the way to get any CPU utilisation number. Are you sure that CMC displays CPU utilisation ( allocation - idle)? I am quite surprised then, would not…
  • Hi, this is a new graph, new data, before main CPU graph was CPU pool, however it does not include CPU dedicated LPARs load. You can see that you have all history in CPU pool graph.
  • Hi, yep, that is the bug, already fixed (no UI menu is refreshed when only Linux agent data is in the tool) upgrade to: upgrade docu:
  • I did not understand what fixed it, different PERL5LIB? It is normally set here cd /home/stor2rrd/stor2rrd grep PERL5LIB= etc/stor2rrd.cfg
  • su - stor2rrd cd /home/stor2rrd/stor2rrd . etc/stor2rrd.cfg $PERL -MNet::OpenSSH -e 'print "Version: $Net::OpenSSH::VERSION\n"' rpm -qa| grep -i openssh
