[Orca-users] AIX monitors for Orca

I've looked at the data files that nmon spits out.  They're definitely 
designed for spreadsheet processing -- parsing through them to generate 
orcallated data using perl and/or unix toolkits is going to be a bear.  
They're also /enormous/ data files, by comparison.  I think the aix 
orcallator that Rajesh contributed a few months ago that we've been 
tweaking is going to be more productive, and will ultimately represent 
the same data.  Also, I think nmon requires a lot more overhead than a 
perl script would -- I don't think it's designed to run 24x7 as SOP, but 
rather, to be run during specific intervals while you're trying to fix 
an already-identified performance problem.

Rajesh - do you know whether nmon is part of the standard AIX OS 
install, or is it a separate (cost? free?) product that must be 
specifically installed by the user for monitoring purposes?
