    Did you receive any response from IBM on this query? We recently upgraded a couple of LPAR's from AIX 5.3.12 to AIX 7.1.1.3 and on these lpars I am seeing the Dxfs value to be really high and being marked as red. I am running gmon version 7.15n

    Hi,

    The Dxfs - is th etotal number of disk transfers (read and write)

    Looks like I have set the colours too sensitive/low so it turns red too quickly.

    I'll adjust gmon and issue a fix in the next few days.

    What are the threshold setting for the disk transfer and network IO. other information regarding the setting for the remaining metrics that changes color would be helpful
