pdt_report Script


Generates a Performance Diagnostic Tool (PDT) report based on the current historical information.


pdt_report [ severity ]


PDT periodically samples the performance of the system and adds the data to a historical database. Normally, PDT generates a report daily at a set time. The pdt_report script creates such a report on demand. The report is written to stdout. Error messages are directed to stderr.

Messages from PDT can range in severity from 1 to 3 (with 1 being the most severe). By default, only messages of severity 1 are included in the report. Optionally, pdt_report can be instructed to include messages of lower severity.

The directory /usr/sbin/perf/diag_tool must be in the search path, or the script can be invoked with /usr/sbin/perf/diag_tool/pdt_report


severity The lowest severity messages to be included in the report. Can range from 1 to 3.
