Pinned topic Monitoring IB on AIX 5.3

‏2011-10-05T11:21:01Z |
Hi all.
I would monitor IB traffic on our p575 AIX 5.3 nodes.
I tried fabric viewer (qlogic), connected from my laptop to one mngt server, but when I click on the "view performance" tab, I receive the message:
Cannot collect performance data
Manager down.

Do I need some agent installed on the nodes? Where I can find it? Or, there is some other tool to monitoring all IB traffic on compute nodes?
I read about a SMA/PMA "activation" on Power6 systems. Are they already enabled or have I to start them?
Thank you very much.

    Nobody replies to me?
    However, I'm looking for a tool that can monitoring the infiniband traffic on AIX, not only IP traffic (topas is good for this) but MPI communication also.
    Is there some IBM-AIX product that can solve the issue?
    Thank you.

    Check out Galileo. It's a great product, and is definitely what you are looking for IP traffic. I'm not sure about MPI communication but give it a try. They offer free trials.
