We need to setup LR to help us in Monitoring Unix servers. Can anyone in the forum help me with,
1. What are the pre-requisites for LR to monitor UNIX System Resources.
2. What all counters do we normally moniotr.
You need to have rstatd loaded on the UNIX boxes.
You need to have the LoadRunner system monitor
The statistics available are those provide by rstat.
If you need additional statistics you may want to investigate the SNMP monitor, as usually the information available via SNMP are more comprehensive than what is available via rstat. Check with your UNIX system administrator to see what information they are collecting or monitoring via SNMP today for the boxes/hosts in question. Compare that information to what is offered from Rstat and you may have a clearer path for which solutions is most appropriate in your case.
