Federico Vagnini has written pGraph, an excellent "freeware" tool for viewing AIX and Linux. performance graphs. The viewer works with multiple input formats, including
* nmon (either on AIX and on Linux) * vmstat -t on AIX * topasout (AIX's continuous performance data collector) * topasout on AIX * iostat -alDT on AIX * HMC's data collection extracted using lslparutil command * Workload Partition data collected on AIX6 (currently tested only on Open Beta)
You can download pGraph from http://www-941.ibm.com/collaboration/wiki/display/WikiPtype/Performance+Graph+Viewer
One way to run the program is from a DOS window on your PC. They syntax I use is
java -jar pGraph.jar
Then choose the file.
