This is where you set Capacity Model / Profiles which can later be used to forecast future capacity requirements.

A Capacity Model calculates IO rates against one or more files, by one or more Programs/Processes, and the associated CPU usage.  In effect, it calculates CPU cost of completing a transaction within the profile you specify.

Right panel shows a list of Profiles you had previously defined.

To remove a previously defined Profile, click on the Delete Button for the row it is displayed.  Note that there are no Edit options.  This is due to the fact, that substantial analytics are performed, and new Tables are created when you add a new Profile.  These tables and their content are continuously updated as new data comes in, and old metrics are archived.  To go back through the archives and rebuild a Profile is impractical with possible negative impacts.

To add a new Profile, click on the Add Button above the list.

To copy configurations of one or more Profiles from one NonStop Server to another, click on the Copy Button, also above the list.  On the new Window:

  • Profile Name: Name your profile
  • Data Files: Specify a file or a group of files, using wildcards. Remote Analyst will measure IO rates against these files.
  • Opener: Choose whether you want to measure IO requests coming from any process, only processes of a specific program(s) (wildcard allowed), or processes (wildcard allowed)
  • I/Os: Choose whether all IOs (Read and Write) should be counted, or only Reads or Writes.
  • 1 Transaction is: Set the relationship between IOs and transactions.  For instance, you could set that each transaction requires 3 IOs to this file.
  • Recipient(s): One you submit your selection, Remote Analyst goes through all available metrics in its history to produce an analysis of this model, and its resource requirements.  Depending on the depth of historical data, this could take several minutes to an hour.  Select names of persons who should receive this analysis, once ready.
