Recording General System Performance Data for AIX

Collect Topas Info Introduction I identified a need to record general system information for review in association with DB2TOP data. This is the very brief procedure I developed to do so. Generate the data Execute TOPAS_NMON by using the following commands: topas_nmon -s 5 -c 100 -f This will sample every 5 seconds for 100 samples and save to a file in your current directory. NOTE: You can also leave off the -c and just let it run. When ready to stop it, issue kill command.                 ps -ef | grep -i "topas"                 then, use the kill command, passing in the pID, to end it. Analyze using NMON AnalyzerDownload NMON Analyzer here. (https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/community/wikis/home?lang=en#!/wiki/Power+Systems/page/nmon_analyser  )Open NMON Analyzer.Enable Macros.Set Settings in Settings tab as desired. NOTE: Default values are fine.Set desired settings in Analyzer.Click "Analyze nmon data" button to perform analysis.
