    The AIX Monitoring lets you monitor and manage your AIX environment. It monitors the availability of your servers, which includes the following objects:

    Monitored Objects

    Application classes

     Description

    Data collectionDCMManages and monitors data collection.

    CPU and Kernel

    CPU

    Monitors processor statistics such as percentages of CPU utilization, CPU idle time, CPU time spent on user and system activities.

    SMP

    Monitors basic CPU utilization statistics for multiple processors on a computer.

    KERNEL

    Provides information such as Kernel Memory Allocation (KMA) statistics, i-node usage, and Kernel usage of system resources.

    Overall system health

    HEALTH AT A GLANCE

    Monitors the Overall CPU usage, filesystem usage, and virtual memory of the system.

    Memory

    MEMORY

    Monitors memory activities and reports detailed memory utilization.

    SWAP

    Monitors virtual memory and provides the memory utilization for the entire system and for each swap area.

    Networks

    NETWORK

    Monitors the network for information about interfaces, addresses, protocols, and traffic.

    Network file systems

    NFS

    Provides you with an abstract view of the entire filesystem, regardless of the various systems' architectures and operating systems.

    Processes

    PROCESS

    Displays statistics on process switches, run queues, messaging, and semaphores and allows you to list zombie processes and change process priorities.

    PROCESS_PRESENCE

    Monitors specified processes running on your system.

    Scheduling tasks

    SCHEDULER

    Schedules processes and establishes monitoring blackout periods in your environment.

    Reviewing security

    SECURITY

    Provides listings of the group and password files and shows the failed logins.

    Health of SNMP

    SNMPHealth

    Monitors whether the SNMP Master Agent and subagent are running, lists configuration information, and provides diagnostic tests with which you can troubleshoot problems.

    Users

    USERS

    Monitors the resource consumption of individual users as well as the number of users and sessions that run on the system.

    Filesystems

    FILESYSTEM

    Monitors the filesystems mounted on a system for information such as disk space, i-nodes, mount and unmounts file systems.

    Disks

    DISKS

    Monitors the disk drives that are mounted on a system.

    Remote hosts

    REMOTE_HOSTS

    Monitors remote hosts running Secure Shell (SSH) protocol version 2 (SSH2) using the PSL collection method.

    REMOTE_MONITORING

    Acts as a container KM and hosts the instances of all remote hosts.

    Printers

    PRINTER

    Monitors and manages printers, print queues, and print jobs.

    AIX Virtualization

    VIRTUALIZATION

    Monitors and manages AIX logical partitioned processor statistics such as:

    • Available AIX logical partitions
    • Percentage of resources assigned to the AIX partition
    • Percentage of resources utilized by the AIX partition
    • Percentage of entitled resource utilization by the AIX partition

    Available resources not consumed by the AIX partition

    WPARs

    WPAR

    Monitors the attributes and statistics of WPARs on the system. It enables you to view configuration and resource utilization data for System as well as Application WPARs.

    Mobility

     

    Enables you to migrate partitions and applications without any disruption to the infrastructure services. 

    PowerVM environment

    LPAR

    Monitors Logical Partitions (LPARs)

    MG_SYS

    Monitors managed systems

    PROCPOOL

    Monitors Shared Processor Pools configured on the managed system.

    LP_CONT

    Acts a common container KM and hosts instances of the PROCPOOL and LPAR application classes.
