POOLSTAT(1M) Maintenance Commands POOLSTAT(1M)


NAME


poolstat - report active pool statistics

SYNOPSIS


poolstat [-p pool-list] [-r rset-list] [-T u | d ] [interval [count]]


poolstat [-p pool-list] [-o format -r rset-list]
[-T u | d ] [interval [count]]


DESCRIPTION


The poolstat utility iteratively examines all active pools on the system.
It reports statistics based on the selected output mode. poolstat
provides options to examine only specified pools and report resource set-
specific statistics.


Without options, poolstat examines all pools, reports basic statistics
for their resource sets, and exits.

DISPLAY FORMATS


In default output format, poolstat outputs a header line and a line for
each pool. The line begins with the pool ID and its name, followed by a
column of statistical data for the processor set attached to the pool.


The columns are defined as follows:

id
Pool ID.


pool
Pool name.


rid
Resource set id.


rset
Resource set name.


type
Resource set type.


min
Minimum resource set size.


max
Maximum resource set size.


size
Current resource set size.


used
The measure of how much of the resource set is currently is use.
This is calculated as the percentage utilization of the resource
set multiplied by its size. If resource set has been reconfigured
during last sampling interval, this value might be not reported
(-).


load
The absolute representation of the load that is put on the
resource set. For the definition of this property see
libpool(3LIB).


OPTIONS


The following options are supported:

-o format
Report statistics according to the format specification
given in format. See DISPLAY FORMATS.

The -o option accepts lists as arguments. Items in a list
can be either separated by commas or enclosed in quotes
and separated by commas or spaces.

You can specify multiple -o options. The format
specification is interpreted as the whitespace separated
concatenation of all the format option arguments.

The -o option must be used in conjunction with the -r
option.


-p pool-list
Report only pools whose names are in the given list. If
the -r option is also used, this option selects only
resource sets which belong to pools in the given list.
Statistics for pools or resource sets are reported in the
same order in which pool names are listed on the pool-
list. Pool can be specified by name or by ID.

The -p option accepts lists as arguments. Items in a
pool-list can only be separated by spaces.


-r rset-list
Report resource set statistics. If the rset-list argument
is "all", then all possible resource set types are
selected.

The -r option accepts lists as arguments. Items in a list
can be either separated by commas or enclosed in quotes
and separated by commas or spaces.

The following resource set types are supported:

all
All resource set types


pset
Processor set


-T u | d
Display a time stamp.

Specify u for a printed representation of the internal
representation of time. See time(2). Specify d for
standard date format. See date(1).


OPERANDS


The following operands are supported:

count
The number of times that the statistics are repeated. By
default, poolstat reports statistics only once.

If neither interval nor count are specified, statistics are
reported once. If interval is specified and count is not,
statistics are reported indefinitely.


interval
The sampling interval in seconds.

If neither interval nor count are specified, statistics are
reported once. If interval is specified and count is not,
statistics are reported indefinitely.


EXAMPLES


Example 1: Using poolstat




The following example shows the default output from the poolstat utility:


% poolstat
pset
id pool size used load
0 pool_default 4 3.6 6.2
1 pool_admin 4 3.3 8.4


Example 2: Reporting Resource Set Statistics




The following example reports resource set statistics.


% poolstat -r pset
id pool type rid rset min max size used load
0 pool_default pset -1 pset_default 1 65K 2 1.2 8.3
1 pool_admin pset 1 pset_admin 1 1 1 0.4 5.2
2 pool_other pset -1 pset_default 1 65K 2 1.2 8.3


Resource sets attached to multiple pools, as pset_default in the example
above, are listed multiple times, once for each pool.


Example 3: Restricting the Output to the List of Pools




The following example restricts the output to the list of pools


% poolstat -p pool_default
pset
id pool size used load
0 pool_default 8 5.3 10.3

% poolstat -p 'pool_admin pool_default'
pset
id pool size used load
1 pool_admin 6 4.3 5.3
0 pool_default 2 1.9 2.0

% poolstat -r all -p 'pool_admin pool_default'
id pool type rid rset min max size used load
1 pool_admin pset 1 pset_admin 1 1 1 0.9 2.3
2 pool_default pset -1 pset_default 1 65K 2 2.0 2.0


Example 4: Customizing Output




The following example customizes output:


% poolstat -r -o pool,rset,size,load
pool rset size load
pool_default pset_default 4 4.5
pool_admin pset_admin 4 2.1


EXIT STATUS


The following exit values are returned:

0
Successful completion.


1
An error occurred.


2
Invalid command line options were specified.

reboots or the resource configuration is altered.
