Click on the Clock icon to view the historical performance metrics. This icon is present on the left side of the title bar for each node, and is also available for each graph.

Click on the Globe icon on the left panel, to see live Performance metrics on all your NonStop Servers in a summary format. Note that the title bar for each NonStop uses color to point out alert conditions. Color may be white: all is ok, yellow: warning alert, or red: Major alert.

Ticker

In addition to bell icon indicators, you can monitor the warning and critical threshold breaches using the ticker. The ticker can show Processes and/or CPUs that have breached warning or critical thresholds.

The ticker at every each interval

  • If all is OK then check mark is shown next to the interval timestamp (hh:mm:ss)
  • Otherwise If at least one Process or CPU (depending on the selection) has breached the threshold, then the interval time display is followed by one section per CPU. Each Section:
  • Has a CPU # indicator which is in yellow or red background..
  • Per CPU, Process name is displayed (PIN: nnnn if process name is unknown), followed with % busy value
  • If above threshold, follow with up or down arrow is displayed, in color matching threshold.

Display

The Performance Summary display can be customized by clicking the = icon.

It has 2 sections

  • Monitor – graph widgets showing performance metrics
    • Select the zero or more Entities to display. Each entity corresponds to a graph widget
    • Specify whether the widgets will be displayed in one or two rows. The widgets are evenly distributed if 2 rows are selected.
  • Ticker – select the type of information to show on the ticker
    • What:
      • CPU and/or Process
      • Show only those CPU/Processes that are above Minor or Major thresholds

Each panel can be collapsed or expanded. When expanded, you see six graphs. Each graph has its own panel. The heading of each panel is color coded (white, yellow, or red) to represent alert conditions currently in place for the information it represents. Bell icons (red/yellow) also show the number of alerts for each panel. Click on a bell icon to see details.

There are six panels:

    • CPU – Per CPU, shows % CPU Busy (Y1), and Queue Length (Y2) of the most recent interval. % Busy is shown with a 100% cap. Click on the S icon on the heading to toggle the scale setting. Click on any Y1 data point to see a list of top 5 busiest processes on the selected CPU, or on any Y2 data point to see a list of top 5 processes with the highest Receive Queue. On the new Window, click on any Process to see its trend over time. Also from the CPU graph, you may click on the trend icon (upper right) to either see a trend of % CPU Busy, or CPU Queue Length over time. On the new Trend Window, click on a CPU data point at a point in time to see either the list busiest Processes or Processes with the highest Receive queue at that time.

                        Click on the R icon on the heading to switch to CPU % Memory for the Y1 axis. By default, Y1 axis shows Queue Length which is the R icon.

Counter Formula
% Busy (CPU-BUSY-TIME CPU / DELTA-TIME CPU) * 100
Queue Length (CPU-QTIME CPU / DELTA-TIME CPU)
% Memory (CURRENTLOCKEDMEMORY / MAXIMUMLOCKEDMEMORY) * 100
    • IPU (Applicable ONLY from Web ViewPoint H01ABQ-L01ABR & Web ViewPoint Plus H01AAI-L01AAJ) – Per CPU,shows a stacked bar of % IPU Busy of IPUs of that CPU (Y1), and Queue Lengths of IPUs of that CPU (Y2) of the most recent interval. % Busy is shown as a multiple of 100% since the IPUs are stacked. Click on the S icon on the heading to toggle the scale setting. Click on any Y1 data point to see a list of top 5 busiest processes on the selected CPU, or on any Y2 data point to see a list of top 5 processes with the highest Receive Queue. On the new Window, click on any Process to see its trend over time. Also from the IPU graph, you may click on the trend icon (upper right) to either see a trend of % CPU Busy, or CPU Queue Length over time. On the new Trend Window, click on a CPU data point at a point in time to see either the list busiest Processes or Processes with the highest Receive queue at that time.
Counter Formula
Queue Length (IPU-QTIMEn CPU / DELTA-TIME CPU)
% Busy (IPU-BUSY-TIMEn CPU / DELTA-TIME CPU) * 100
    • Process – Per CPU, shows the % CPU Busy of the busiest Process (Y1), and Receive Queue of the Process with the highest Receive Queue (Y2). % Busy is shown in scaled format. Click on the S icon on the heading to toggle the scale setting. Click on any data point to open a new Trend window for either metrics. You may also click on the trend icon to see the same options. On the new Trend Window, click on a CPU data point at a point in time to see either the list busiest Processes or Processes with the highest Receive queue at that time.

                       Click on the R icon on the heading to switch to Process % Memory for the Y1 axis. By default, Y1 axis shows Queue Length which is the R icon.

Counter Formula
% Busy (CPU-BUSY-TIME PROCESS / DELTA-TIME PROCESS) * 100
Receive Queue (RECV-QTIME PROCESS / DELTA-TIME PROCESS)
Memory Used (PRESPAGES-QTIME PROCESS / DELTA-TIME PROCESS) * PagesToBytes
    • Disk – Per interval, for the recent intervals, shows the % CPU Busy of the Disk with the highest DP2 Busy (Y1), as well as queue length of the Disk with the highest Queue length. % Busy is shown in scaled format. Click on the S icon on the heading to toggle the scale setting. Click on either data points to see a list of top Disks in each category. You may also click on the trend icon to see the same options. On the new Window, click on any Disk to see its trend over time.
Counter Formula
% DP2 Busy (CPU-BUSY-TIME PROCESS / DELTA-TIME PROCESS) * 100
Queue Length (REQUEST-QTIME DISC / DELTA-TIME DISC)
    • TMF – Per interval, shows a stacked bar chart representing % of aborted transaction compared to total. Click on the a graph data point to see a list of top processes with the highest TMF activity. Click on the trend icon to see the trend of overall transaction activity (all processes – system wide). On the trend window, click on any data point to see a list of processes with the highest TMF activity at that point in time.
Counter Formula
% Abort (ABORT-TRANS PROCESS / BEGIN-TRANS PROCESS) * 100
TPS (ZTRANSACTION-RATE FROM TMF STATUS COMMAND) / 100
    • Network– Per interval, shows a trend for ‘Total Sent Messages’, and ‘Total Received Messages’ of the most recent interval. Click on any data points to see the Network Processes with highest Total Received messages/Total Sent messages. On the new Window, click on any Process to see its trend over time. Also from the Network graph, you may click on the trend icon (upper right) to either see a trend of Total Received messages, or Total Sent messages over time. On the new Trend Window, click on a data point at a point in time to see Processes with highest Total Sent/Received trend at that time.
Counter Formula

    • CLIM– Per CLIM, for the recent intervals, shows the % CLIM Busy (Y1) with the highest memory used (Y2). % Busy is shown in scaled format. Click on the S icon on the heading to toggle the scale setting. Also from the CLIM graph, you may click on the trend icon (upper right) to either see a trend of % CPU Busy, or Memory used over time.
Counter Formula
