Key Indicators Online Display

This display is available for the following platforms: LINUX NONSTOP UNIX WINDOWS

Key Indicator data is provided through two different Displays, with each one based on the Prognosis Server platform:

MS Windows

The Key Indicators Online Display for Windows provides an overview of the operating system performance on a specific server. The summary panels at the top of the Display identify the operating system, version number and any installed service pack, hardware version, the GMT Offset and the time that the machine was lasted booted. The tables below show more detailed information about the system performance.

This Display can be accessed from the Windows Server Overview Display by clicking on the Key Indicators link in the 'Server Navigation' window.

Top 5 Busy Processes

This chart makes use of the NtProcess (NTJOBS) record to obtain details of ;

Name

The name of the process.

PID 

Process Id which is a unique identifier for the process.

BUSY %

Percentage of elapsed time that all threads of this process have used to execute the instructions.

HAND CNT

Total number of handles currently open by this process.

PRIV MB

Private Megabytes, current number of megabytes that this process has allocated that cannot be shared with other processes.

WSET MB

Working Set Megabytes, current number of megabytes in the Working Set of this process. The Working Set is the set of memory pages touched recently by the process threads.

Disk Partitions

This chart makes us of the NtDiskLogical (NTLGDISK) record and provides the following;

DRIV LETT

Drive letter that uniquely identifies each logical disk installed on the system.

FREE MB

The unallocated space on the disk drive in megabytes.

CAPACITY 

The capacity of the disk in megabytes.

BUSY%  

Percentage of elapsed time that the selected disk drive is busy servicing read or write requests.

UNIX/Linux

The Key Indicators Online Display for UNIX/Linux provides an overview of the operating system performance on a specific node. The summary panels at the top of the Display identify the operating system, version number, last boot time, number of process running, network packets sent,.busiest CPU percentage busy, amount of free memory available and the busiest disk percentage busy. The tables below show more detailed information about the system performance.

This Display can be accessed from the UNIX Server Overview Display by clicking on the Key Indicators link in the 'Server Navigation' window.

Top 5 Busy Processes Using CPU

This chart makes use of the UnixtProcess (UXPROC) record to obtain details of:

Exec Name

The executable name of the process.

CPU% Busy

The percentage of time that the CPU was working for this process during the last interval.

PID

Process Id which is a unique identifier for the process.

Flts Tot

The total number of page faults per second.

MemM Size

The virtual memory usage, in MBS, consumed by this process.

User Name 

The name of the user who owns this process.

Elap Time

Elapsed real time from process start to process exit for exited processes, or the elapsed time since process start for processes that are currently running.

ResM Size

The size of yhe memory, in MBs, resident in physical memory for this process. This figure includes Data, Stack, Code, Library and Shared segments.

Disk > 20% Busy

This chart makes us of the UnixPhysicalVolume (UXPHYVOL) record and provides the following data:

Disk Name

Physical disk name.

Disk Busy (%)

Percentage of time spent serving requests.

IO Rate

Number of transfers per second.

Outstanding Requests

Current number of outstanding requests.

Filesystems < 100Mb Free Space

This chart makes use of the UnixFileSystems (UXFILSYS) record and provides the following data:

File System

Location where the file system is mounted.

Free MB

Free file system space in MBs.

HPE NonStop

The Key Indicators Online Display provides an overview of the operating system performance on a specific node. The summary panels at the top of the Display show a range of real-time metrics including queue lengths, CPU performance, free pages in memory and Disk busy percentages. The tables below show more detailed information about the system performance.

This Display can be accessed from the NonStop Server Overview Display by clicking on the Key Indicators link in the 'Server Navigation' window.

Top 20 Busiest Processes

This table makes use of the NonStopJob (JOBS) record to obtain the following details for the 20 busiest processes currently being run.

Name

Process Name.

PID

Process ID.

Busy %

Percentage of the interval that the process spent executing in its CPU.

Object

The basename of the executable file.

PRI

Execution priority.

Rcv Rate

Rate of messages received by the process.

Sent Rate

Rate of messages sent by the process.

User

Group and user number of the owner of the process.

Object File

Process object file name.

8 Busiest Disks

This table makes use of the NonStopVolume (VOLUME) record to obtain the following details for the 8 busiest disks.

Volume

Volume name.

Disk Busy %

The proportion of the interval that the disk was busy.

I/O Rate

I/Os per second to and from the disk.

Driv Act

The number of drives that were up at the start of the last interval. If the drive is mirrored and both the primary and mirror drive were up then a value of 2 will be shown.

Files Open

The number of files open for write on disk.

8 Fullest Disks

This table also makes use of the NonStopVolume (VOLUME) record to obtain the following details for the 8 fullest disks.

Volume

Volume name.

Files Open

The number of files open for write on disk.

Free Space

The amount of free space on the volume in megabytes.

% in Use

Percentage of space on the volume that has been used.

Raw Growth

The growth or contraction of free space on the volume in megabytes.

The NonStop Central link at the top of the screen will open the NonStop Server Overview Display.
