monitoring tools?

I think you are asking if HPUX has SAM? Well, it does.

Or are you looking for tools in SAM that can measure usage?

here are several tools you can do a man on that can be run from the command line.


Please clarify what you are talking about.

Suggest reading the man page

$ man sam

Quite a bit of info in there with references to other guides to look at.

Sam has a great feature. It has a log tool that will create a log file. Once you start SAM, go to Options. --> View Sam Log.

You can also go to vi /var/sam/log/samlog.

This will capture everything that is done by SAM. You will need to set the verbose option in SAM to get everything. There will be much more in there than just the syntax but it will show you all the commands that were executed.

I would also suggest you go to to find HPUX documentation for everything from LVM to Ignite and anything else you need. It will be very helpful for you.

Hope this is what you needed.

While you can certainly do that, the result will depend on your version of HP-UX. Originally, /var/sam/log/samlog was just a text file and so you could usefully vi it. In recent versions of HP-UX it has become a binary file. You need to use a program called "samlog_viewer" to read it.
