Unfortunaly there are not that much check plugins for AIX. Further almost all of them use other programs to access performance data. Therefore I was inspired by Perfstat API Programming from IBM to change those issues.
Please visit also this link to get more information:

Please feel free to send me an email to nagios.info@suedleasing.de if you have any questions.

The Checks

I have implemented three checks:

check_lpar_cpu

check_disk_io

check_network_io

They are compiled as follow:

xlC -lperfstat -o check_lpar_cpu check_lpar_cpu.cpp

xlc -lperfstat -o check_network_io check_network_io.c

xlc -lperfstat -o check_disk_io check_disk_io.c

Settings

To use check_lpar_cpu properly, you have to enable one feature over HMC. This is shown in picture hmc_lpar_setting.png

HINT

If you compile the plugins on AIX Version 6100-06-04-1112 they will not work on AIX with lower versions.
