You might have heard the old adage, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Metrically, perhaps it is a gram of prevention and a kilogram of cure. In our home, vitamin C and zinc are our home's attempt to ward off colds, but I wish our ounce of prevention could come in the form of chocolate! Whatever works, the low-cost, proactive steps that prevent bigger problems later on are always worth it!
And of course the same is true with information technology. Part of the reason you are running Tivoli monitoring software is not only for quick notification of problems but also to be alerted when problems are about to occur. But if there are known problems lurking around, with known solutions, it is best to apply those solutions right away.
For the Tivoli Monitoring for System p agents, applying the latest interim fixes can help you prevent problems that are already solved. Here are the links for the latest interim fixes for each agent:
In addition, make sure you have the latest AIX perfagent.tools fileset installed on all your LPARs by getting the required perfagent.tools versions.
Make a commitment to apply these fixes, eliminate some worry in your life, and even celebrate with a bit of chocolate! For more information on the System p Agents, go to the System p Agents Troubleshooting Wiki.
