First of all let me know whether the servers you are referring are windows based or UNIX based... configuring the server resource stats are different for Windows and UNIX servers.

Hi,

There are various tools in the market (some are free) for monitoring server memory stats for UNIX boxes.

However, if you want load runner to capture the stats, there are load runner native monitors available for that.

Go to the UNIX box and vi the inetd.conf file and remove the # entry before rpc.rstatd in the file to enable the daemon service. Now, restart the controller m/c once. After the Controller has been started go to run window in the LR Controller and open the UNIX monitor and add the server to monitor. Now add the suitable counters to monitor. Monitoring should start immediately. Go to Load runner monitor ref for more details.

To get sense of specific memory counters on UNIX, you may want to take a look at Performance Monitoring Best Practices book - see this thread (http://forums11.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?threadId=1354128).

BTW, LR/PC may work together with SiteScope which provides almost endless monitoring capabilities.

Thanks for the information.i am already monitoring the Unix resources.I need to know if it is possible to get the memory consumption from the available counters in LoadRunner.

You have to use the counters like Paging rate (<50), pagein/sec, pageout/sec, %used (<80%) counters and as leobor has suggested, HP Performance monitor best practice document should give you more light.
