NetMaster Network Management for TCP/IP


Can NetMaster provide historical traffic on OSA Interfaces?  I am trying to look at the traffic on a link for at least a week but I am only able to see the traffic for the last hour.  What is the command to see and extract this type of traffic? 


Release : 12.2

Component : CA NetMaster Network Management for TCP/IP


In the Netmaster region, issue 
/OSA and select H - Performance History or OV - Performance Overview.
 -> Use a '?' in the  OSA Name field to get the list of devices to choose from.
   -> There are multiple options for drilling down so you can view hourly/daily/weekly data.
        Depending on the selection, PF12 may display a longer timeframe to choose from.
        You can drill down in different attributes, depending on what you want to see.

Similarly you can issue 
  -> under Devices and Links select OSA
    -> Select a device
      -> either view sample data for a specific qualifier or 
         select an RMF Chpid utilization attribute to see hourly/daily/weekly aggregation data

Overview of how Netmaster manages OSA information can be found in the Netmaster for TCP/IP User's Guide in the section on Managing Open Systems Adapters

If you have a need to extract or print this type of traffic please contact support and reference this document.
