README.AIX

Using Ganglia on AIX
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This Version is tested on AIX 5.1, 5.2 and 5.3. AIX 4.3 might work as well,
but it's not tested by now.

Installation
~~~~~~~~~~~~

You still need some "tricks" to use ganglia on a AIX system:

1. The AIX-Version should not be compiled with shared libraries
   You must add the "--disable-shared" and "--enable-static" configure
   flags if you running on AIX

   ./configure --disable-shared --enable-static

2. You should use "gcc". xlc does not work out of the box. If you only have
   "xlc", the following might work. Run configure first !!

   a) remove "-Wall" from all Makefiles, especially:

     lib/Makefile
     gmond/gstat/Makefile
     gmond/Makefile
     gmetric/Makefile
     gmetad/Makefile  (see below)

     This should be done automatically, but automake/autoconf experts are
     needed.

   b) to actually build the binaries do:

     make CC="cc -qlanglvl=extc99"

   c) To build "gmetad", the following is needed:
   c1) install the following software, preferably from RPMs:

       libart_lgpl-devel-2.3.16-1
       freetype2-devel-2.1.7-2
       zlib-1.2.2-4
       libpng-1.2.1-6
       freetype2-2.1.7-2
       libart_lgpl-2.3.16-1
       rrdtool-1.2.11.perl56-1 (cp /opt/freeware/include/rrd.h /usr/include/ )

   c2) For Gmetad-3.0.3 or earlier: there is a conflict regarding the macro
       "FRAMSIZE". In "gmetad/*" change all occurences of "FRAMESIZE" to
       "GMETAD_FRAMESIZE". This will be fixed in version 3.0.4.

Known problems and Limitations
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 - Occasionally Ganglia might report wrong network statistics, because
   there is no test for arithmetic overflow of the AIX counters by now.
   (Will be fixed soon, but might not make it in ganglia-3.0.2)

 - The following standard metrics are _not_ reported (reported as 0):
   mem_buffers (-), mem_shared (-), part_max_used(+), cpu_sintr
   (--), cpu_intr (--), cpu_aidle (+),   cpu_nice (-)

   (--) cpu_nice, cpu_intr and  cpu_sintr:
        There is no way to include this metric, because AIX
        dose not know anything about them
	
   (-)  mem_buffers and mem_shared: libperfstat does not report
        his information, but maybe somebody knows another way.

   (+)  part_max_used and cpu_aidle: it's quite easy to do this
	metrics as well using libperfstat, but no body has written
        code so far.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
