Hi Paulo,

I never tried ORCA on AIX server. There are limited help for other packages like RRD etc. check  www.bullfreeware.com

For Linux you can get all the help you need and all the packaged needed.

I will suggest to install ORCA on Linux and just run AIX collecter script on the AIX servers.

Hi Orc's !


I try install ORCA on my AIX machines, but I can't start ORCA correctly because I get an error on RRD !


Can you help me to discover where is the error when I start orca on my AIX machine ?


1º I download "orca-0.27.tar.gz"

2º install Perl + GCC

3º  use the "INSTALL" help to compile the modules

I don't get errors !


I already install "orca-aix-stat.pl" to collect the data to orcallator directory, but the RRD files are not created when I start ORCA !
