Solaris Performance Monitoring Tools????


Are there any GUI (preferably web based) Solaris monitoring tools available for the SPARC platform.
Just to clarify, when i say GUI, I don't mean buttons to configure the Software, of course that would be a plus, but rather GUI in terms of output, like Graphs.

what sort of things do you want to monitor / Administer?

There's all sorts of stuff available for host / network.

Nagios / Solarwinds / Cacti / SMC / Opmanager / Webmin

Solaris Management Console (as i think it is now) will allow you to monitor / administer a number of sparc machines through a graphical interface.

Thanks for the list, I will start looking into them.

As for monitoring, Just the general stuff like

- Hard Disk and Memory utilization
- CPU Utilization
- Monitors LDOMS (we don't have zones)
- Network

Note: Should support both Solaris 9 and 10 (SPARC), and have graphs,...

note, there is a difference between "monitoring" and "performance monitoring"!

Can you recommend one for each,...
My manager is looking some equivalent to an HP product called perfview

as you can see in my last post (first post in this thread) i recommended "dim_stat" for performance monitoring. it's easy to use and it's free!
