Zabbix agent on IBM AIX

Zabbix agent for AIX has been enhanced with capability to monitor physical CPU utilization. A system.cpu.util[] item key now has an additional 4th parameter:

  • system.cpu.util[<cpu>,<type>,<mode>,<logical_or_physical>]

The <logical_or_physical> key parameter allows to specify whether an item should report logical or physical CPU utilization (supported values: logical, physical). This new functionality uses AIX libperfstat function perfstat_cpu_util() which is available from AIX 6.1 TL07 and AIX 7.1 TL01 (as far as we could find). If your AIX system does not have these technology levels installed, please use an older agent version. You can check which AIX version and technology level (TL) is installed by running oslevel command (see description in the IBM documentation)
