IBM Monitoring software on IBM AIX

Hi,
I am looking for monitoring software like Zabbix, to run it on AIX server. I have many problems with Zabbix and MySQL installation on AIX. I dont have IBM XL C/C++ compiler. Has anyone know similar solution like Zabbix that works on IBM AIX?

You want to run the server or the client/agent on AIX?

Sorry, I don't know any. Most monitoring solutions run on Linux like Nagios, Icinga, Groundwork, etc. or on Windows. IBMPower resources are may be too expensive just for a monitoring server.

Maybe you get lucky compiling/installing one with the GNU packages you can get here:

AIX Open Source Packages | Main / AIX Open Source Packages

There is also gcc and much much more.

Update:
There is even a completely compiled Nagios 4.1 package collection.

Too bad Linux. Maybe I will try Nagios. I know perlz.org it is very helpful for AIX admins.

If you have fun coding and enough time or a helping hand, you could also write a monitoring yourself. We did some years ago using shell and perl, since HP Open View was so bad on AIX (agent).

You do not need to compile MySQL at all. You can download the "Community Server" version 5.0.91 from MySQL Download Archives for AIX. and use that.

I hope this helps.

Anyways, i suggest yo take a look into LPAR2RRD, which is perhaps a better monitoring tool than Zabbix for AIX.

I hope this helps.
