ITM 6.2.x Linux and Unix O/S Agents in a 6.3 environment may result in zero-value weighted averages

Flash (Alert)


Abstract

Using any 6.2.x version of the ITM Linux or Unix O/S agents in an environment that has been upgraded to support a 6.3 Linux or Unix O/S agents will result in values of 0 for certain aggregated attributes.

Content

A enhancement was made to the 6.3.0 version of the Linux and Unix O/S agents to increase the accuracy of the aggregated data. The Linux and UNIX OS agents added WHSC columns in the ODI files (docklz and dockux) to handle receiving invalid row data. Customers that migrate their ITM environment to 6.3 that still have 6.2.x agents will experience a condition where certain attributes will appear as 0. The affected tables and related attributes are listed below:

Linux_OS agent:
Table Linux Network / KLZNET
Bytes_Received_per_sec
KBytes_Transmitted_Count

Table Linux_CPU / KLZCPU
Busy_CPU
Idle_CPU
Wait_IO_CPU
Steal_CPU_Percent
System_CPU

Table Linux_VM Stats / KLZVM
Memory_Free
Memory_Free_Pct
Memory_Used
Memory_Used_Pct
Net_Memory_Used
Net_Memory_Used_Pct
Total_Memory_Free
Total_Memory_Free_Pct

Table Linux_IO_Ext / KLZIOEXT
Transfers_bytes_per_sec
Read_bytes_per_sec
Write_bytes_per_sec

Table Linux_LPAR / KLZLPAR
Number_of_Physical_CPUs
Max_Physical_CPUs
Entitlement_Used

UNIX OS agent:
Table System, SP2System / UNIXOS, SP2OS
Block_Reads
Block_Writes
CPU_Busy
Idle_CPU
NonBlock_Reads
NonBlock_Writes
Physical_Consumption
System_CPU
User_CPU
Virtual_Memory_Percent_Used
Number_of_CPUs

Table Disk_Performance / UNIXDPERF
Disk_Read_Bytes_Sec

Table Network / UNIXNET

Frames_Transmitted_per_sec

Table Unix_Memory / UNIXMEM
Avail_Real_Mem_MB
Avail_Real_Mem_Pct
Used_Real_Mem_Pct
Used_Real_Mem_MB

APAR IV43893 has been created to address this issue. A fix will be provided for 6.3 FP01, and this will be included as part of 6.3 FP02. You must install this patch before you add 6.3 O/S agent Application Support or upgrade to the 6.3 version of the Linux or Unix O/S agents.

The fixes for APAR IV43893 are attached to this document. Please see the README file for installation instructions.
