useful to help improve performance of HP-UX applications (this is one of our main goals at AppMate).
IOzone is a filesystem benchmark tool we used to demonstate the speed of a ramdisc vs the VA7400
virtual disk array as shown on our IOzone benchmark page. The output of IOzone can be converted to
three dimmensional charts with Microsoft Excel. There are many options within IOzone to isolate only
the data you want to retrieve. IOzone is a free utility and available at www.iozone.org
SarCheck developed by Aptitune Corporation is an inexpensive tool to help UNIX system administrators
with UNIX performance tuning. It identifies problem areas, and if necessary, recommends changes to the
system's tunable parameters. SarCheck translates your system's sar reports into a Plain English report.
SarCheck can detect CPU Bottlenecks, runaway processes, I/O bottlenecks, improper I/O load balancing,
slow disk devices, memory bottlenecks and leaks, inefficient system buffer cache sizing, improper system
table sizes, and inefficient PATH variables. It analyzes resources analysis and makes recommendations.
HP IT Resource Forum may be used to find a resolution to a performance problem (or to suggest one).
Other people may have experienced the same problem with an application and a solution may already
be posted on this forum. The forum site is free but requires registration at forums.itrc.hp.com
