Thanks Frank. I am usually just writing up solutions to issues that customers have brought up in PMRs. What is written here is a bit more polished and thoughtful. Often my testing for the blog requires a more general scheme.

I am working to get ahead of the game. At this week I have two un-posted entries and a third in the thinking stage.

As always, I am amazed with your work. when I grow up (I'm not saying that you are "elder" ) I want to be like you. -))))

A reminder... the third sit needs revision so the sysload15 attributes are sent. john

Any reason this would not be a good solution on AIX, Solaris or HPUX? I am trying it on AIX now and I ran into a minor problem: the "echo" command has no options! I changed the first part of situation 2 as follows:
cd $CANDLEHOME/tmp;(echo "&{System.Load_Average_15_Min} " | awk '{printf $1 " "}'; (cat ponline.txt 2>/dev/null || echo 1)) | . . . .

Note also the 2>/dev/null instead of 2>nul or 2>null

Good points, I will update the examples.

You need to be a bit careful with awk. For example in Solaris you must use nawk {new awk] because the awk binary is busted - at least on the systems I tested with,

I reworked the example action command so the the echo -n option was not needed. It is not present in some platforms. Also added a comment about sometimes needing to use "nawk" or new awk on some platforms.

One potential 'problem' is that the reflex automation of part2 generates a couple of lines of output in the agent's LG0 log file every 5 minutes. Unlike the RAS1 logs, this file is allowed to grow indefinitely... I suppose it could get pretty big.

One option to reduce the overhead of _part2 and reduce the message flow to .LG0 is to change the predicate or _part2 from (System Load Last 15 Minutes >= 0.00) to > 4.00 (or the value used in "if (load/100 > cpu*4.00)" if not 4.00).
