Recommend graphical monitoring tool for sun

Hi folks
I am looking for tool which have graphical presentation for cpu and disk characteristics. Cpu is the least of the concern, disk is the most.
We use san devices and i know which id's correspond to it. But the problem is that at least one of the tool I tried to use - Quest Sportlight does not even report these id's.
I need common disk stuff: queue length, service time per sec.
I know it can be done using iostat or sar. But I understand I have to write an application to use them. I am looking to get the picture of these readings over 1 - 2 hr. of time.
Turns out it's a big problem to find a tool.

You might have a look at the SEToolkit. SE Toolkit | Get SE Toolkit at
However, as you wrote Quest Sportlight is missing some devices I suspect you use Veritas volumes in which case I'm afraid they won't be reported either with the SEToolkit according to its FAQ.

I've seen Nagios used this way on Solaris. I don't know if custom plugins were added or not, though.

You can take your sar and iostat output and import it in to a spreadsheet, then plot graphs from that.

I believe Sun Management Console (/usr/sbin/smc) will give you the info you need. It ships with default Solaris installations.
