I have seen some requests for having a monitor which displayed computational memory within AIX, so that you can see what is in use as opposed to what is stashed away as caching memory. Has anyone written this? Does Uptime 6 display this out of the box?

I would like to know before I start writing one on my own.

Hey Blake,
I don't believe we've currently received any monitor or script that does this. It should be fairly simple to get a script that does this.

For reference, these are the AIX metrics that up.time currently collects:

If you'd like a template monitor to start with running a remote custom monitor, have a look at the Custom Remote monitor here:

Hope this helps.
