IBM Tivoli Monitoring 6.2.3 FixPack 1 introduced a first stage of convergence between Unix OS Agent (KPX) and Premium Agent (KPX) on AIX platform.
The new KUX agent introduced a set of metrics coming from the Premium Agent as described in the following link:
The data collection of these metrics is done by a new daemon (aixdp_daemon) that is controlled by the Unix OS Agent and it is enabled by default and can be controlled (locally or remotely using tacmd CLI) using the KUX_AIXDP configuration variable.
The data collection of the new metrics starts only on AIX and only at the following minimum AIX levels: AIX 5.3 TL12 and AIX 6.1 TL5
The KPX and new KUX agent can coexist on the same machine and the upgrade is allowed only from old KUX agent to the new KUX agent.
