You can track adapter multipath status on AIX, VIOS, Linux on Power and Linux x86 servers.
Just activate OS agent on monitored hosts.

Server monitoring

OS agent configuration

  • AIX: nothing is needed, all works automatically
  • Linux:
    Mutltipath info on Linux is provided only via cmd '/usr/sbin/multipath -ll' which can be run under root only.
    Follow these steps to make it work:
    1. enable sudo for lpar2rrd user:
      lpar2rrd  ALL = (root) NOPASSWD: /usr/sbin/multipath -ll
    2. use this crontab cmd to run the agent, add "-m" option
      * * * * * /usr/bin/perl /opt/lpar2rrd-agent/ -m <XorMon NG server hostname/IP> > /var/tmp/lpar2rrd-agent.out 2>&1
