Memory utilization

I am trying to gather total memory, memory utilization, NIC utilization,
and CPU utilization for a NetWare 6.5 SP2 server that I can trend over a
period of time. The tool set I have at my disposal is: spectrum,
concord, Insight manager agents 7.40a, HP file server hardware. I would
like to try and use this tool set to gather this trending information.
Currently I am able to gather 3 of the 4 (total memory, cpu utilization
and nic utilization) using Insight Manager and snmp mibs. I am working
with HPQ on this but as of now they have no solution.

An interssting point is I can gather all 4 pieces of information from
Windows using the above described toolset but not for NetWare.

Does anyone have any ideas? maybe an NLM I can use to gather the data and
send it via snmp to one of the tool sets desrcibed above.

thanks

Re: Memory utilization

I don't know if you already found these agents and mibs, but if your
server loads NMA5.NCF from AUTOEXEC.NCF then you have lots of server
information available through SNMP, and the MIBS for it can be found in
SYSTEM\NMA\MIBS

Another way to get more details from the server is to use the MRTG agents
for NetWare available here:

Re: Memory utilization

The mibs you mentioned are already loaded by default with NetWare 6.5. I
would prefer to not load anything additional to get this information.
But, if I have to I would rather load another mib rather then another
application.

The MIB files I mentioned are text files to import into your mangement
software to make use of all the SNMP options the Management agents
support. So if you have NMA5.NCF loaded, there is a lot of information
available, just waiting for an application that knows how to make the
right requests.

NRM gathers the data; click on Health Monitor, and look at Available
Memory; perhaps you can mine the server response for this URL? Kinda a
dashboard thingie, I would guess.
