Monitoring Byte Usage of Large MySQL InnoDB Buffer Pools?
jp flag

I am trying to monitor the total number of used bytes in a MySQL 5.7 InnoDB Buffer Pool, that can go up to 100GB, using Innodb_buffer_pool_bytes_data but it seems that this status variable is a 32-bit unsigned integer when I query it, so it overflows when bytes go past 2^32.

It seems to be an unsigned long integer internally in MySQL ( ...

How to write pidstat output to a sadc file for analysis later (sar)
cn flag

How can I write the output of pidstat to a file for analysis later?

In sar, you can monitor usage and write-out to a file for later analysis using the -o argument. From the man page:

       If multiple samples and multiple reports are desired, it is convenient to specify an output file for the sar command.  Run the sar command as  a
       background process. The syntax for this is:

What defines the "interval" when playing back Performance Co-Pilot data in pcp-atop?
in flag

I have PCP (Performance Co-Pilot) recording performance metrics on a RHEL 7 host. The recording cadence is set to Y seconds here:


When I copy the performance metrics logs to another machine I'm able to analyze the files using:

pcp atop --interval=Zs -r /path/to/archive/files/

(where Z is a value that may or may not be the same as Y)

When I jump around in the archive usi ...

Monitoring (summarizing) network usage of a single application (process) (Linux)
jp flag

I have a single application that seems to be a network pig (based on a casual glance at its logs - it seems awfully chatty). I'd like to find out what its bandwidth usage is - preferably in the form of a summary timeline, e.g., incoming/outgoing total bytes every minute (alternatively, in a form I can summarize that way myself with other tools).

If it is something that can be done with standard  ...

Is there a program to diagnose and summarize why my mchine is slow?
ru flag

Is there a program that will tell me why my server is slow? What is being over utilized? CPU / Memory / Disk / Network ... and what processes are driving that utilization? I want a program that can check and explain it to me. (I don't want to figure it out myself.) Maybe it could even suggest server tuning changes.
