Connector for "IBM AIX - Common"

Should you install this patch?

Install this patch if you are experiencing network delays when monitoring network cards on IBM AIX servers.

What does it fix?

Network delays have been observed when the enstat command used to collect Ethernet ports statistics on IBM AIX servers was run on disabled ports. To prevent these delays, Hardware Sentry KM now checks whether the ports are enabled or not before running this consuming command. For disabled ports, default values ("unplugged", zero traffic, OK) will now be provided.

How to install the patch?

  1. Copy the following file to the $PATROL_HOME/lib/MS_HW_hdf directory on the server where the PATROL Agent runs:
    • MS_HW_IBMAIX.hdf
  2. Re-initialize Hardware Sentry for the patch to take effect.
  3. Nothing needs to be installed on Console systems.
