As long as rstatd is runnnig on the unix server that you are monitoring you should be getting the correct metrics. What type of unix box is this?

Re: CPU Utilization shows as 100

Sorry to say that I have never had to monitor a Redhat OS. I have had no problems with AIX, HP-UX, or Solaris. The only problem that I have encountered it the loss of connectivity to rstatd with heavy network activitiy. If one call fails you loose your monitor.

Have you tried to use SiteScope? There are free points that you can use for monitoring Unix due to the problems with the Unix Resource Monitor loosing connectivity to rstatd under heavy load. It uses either vmstat or sar to pull the CPU metrics, I am not sure which at this point. It would be worth a try since it is more robust under load.

Hello,

I have the same problem whith Linux. The unique solution I have found (for the moment) consist to reboot the server before your load test. After reboot, the CPU Utilization on monitors is OK.

Re: CPU Utilization shows as 100

just say no to rstatd 🙂 if you have SNMP installed and active no the server you can use a SNMP monitor. also, you can use SiteScope to capture the cpu and other monitors and connect your loadrunner to the sitescope instance to get your stats.
