RSTAT Monitoring

NeoLoad provides load testing RSTAT monitoring by accessing daemon counters in real time. NeoLoad allow users to monitor the rpc.rstatd daemon that is already installed and running on most Solaris and Linux machines.

Features

  • Preconfigured Monitoring: Each module ships pre-configured with the performance counters tailored to your system.
  • Threshold Alerts: NeoLoad provides threshold values –derived from industry best practices- to raise the appropriate alerts.
  • Agentless Monitoring: The design of our monitoring modules, based on industry standards, ensures non-intrusive remote monitoring.
  • Real Time: The counter values and the threshold alerts are available as soon as the test is run.
  • Import: Import data from external monitoring tools.

Note: All the modules are included with the free edition.

Performance Counters

The available RSTAT monitor counters:

  • CPU Usage: The percentage of CPU time, for all processors globally, taken up executing user commands, and carrying out system tasks and I/O operations. This monitor takes into account the total number of processors in its calculation of CPU usage.
  • User CPU: The percentage of CPU time, for all processors globally, taken up executing user commands. This monitor shows the CPU usage per user across all the processors globally.
  • Nice CPU: The percentage of CPU time, for all processors globally, taken up by low-priority processes. The time taken up by „nice“ tasks is already taken into account in the System CPU and User CPU times.
  • System CPU: The percentage of CPU time, for all processors globally, taken up executing system tasks, including system calls to kernel routines.
  • Interruptions count: The number of interruptions occurring during a monitoring interval.
  • Context switch count: The number of processor context changes per second.
  • Memory Page paged IN: The number of pages moved from the disk into cache memory.
  • Memory Page paged OUT: The number of pages moved from cache memory to the disk.
  • Memory Page swapped IN: The number of pages moved from swap space to storage space.
  • Memory Page swapped OUT: The number of pages moved from storage space to swap space.
  • Network IN packets count: The number of network packets entering per second.
  • Network OUT packets count: The number of network packets exiting per second.
  • Network IN errors count: The total number of network errors inbound per second.
  • Network OUT errors count: The total number of network errors outbound per second.
  • Network Collisions count: The number of network collisions occurring during the monitoring interval. A collision is an undesirable event resulting from competing network packets being transmitted over a same channel.
