The Vradvisor tool runs on Windows or Solairs, but it supports data collection on ANY platform, so you just need to collect vxstat information, so on your redhat systems you need to run:

# vxstat -g dgname -i interval -c count volumes > filename

and then copy "filename" to Windows/Solaris machine you have vradvisor installed on for the data to be analysed.

 

See http://www.symantec.com/business/support/resources/sites/BUSINESS/content/live/DOCUMENTATION/6000/DOC6991/en_US/sfhas_replication_admin_61_lin.pdf

VRAdvisor is supported on the following operating systems:
■ Solaris 10 and Solaris 11
■ Windows XP
■ Windows 2000 Professional, Windows 2000 Server, Windows 2000 Advanced
Server, Windows 2000 Datacenter Server
Note: If Windows 2000 is installed on your system, you must have Service Pack
(SP) 4 installed on it.
■ Windows Server 2003 (32-bit): Standard Edition, Web Edition, Enterprise Edition,
Datacenter Edition
 
 
Collecting data using the data collection script
 
To collect sample data for analysis by VRAdvisor, you need not have VRAdvisor
installed on the system. Use the data collection script to collect data for AIX, HP-UX,
Linux, or Solaris systems.
 
To collect data using vxstat
1 Set the locale to a supported locale. For example:
# export LC_ALL=C
 
2 To collect the data in the format required for analysis, use the following
command with exactly the parameters shown:
# vxstat -g dgname -i interval -c count volumes > filename
 
where:
interval is the data collection interval in seconds.
count is the number of samples to collect.
volumes is a list of volume names separated by spaces.
For example, use the following command to collect a sample of data every 120
seconds and to collect 5040 samples. The volumes are the data volumes
hr_dv01 and hr_dv02 in the disk group hrdg . The results are collected in the
file vra_in .
# vxstat -g hrdg -i 120 -c 5040 hr_dv01 hr_dv02 > vra_in
After the data collection completes, the file filename (for example, vra_in)
contains the sample of data in the vxstat format, which can be used for analysis
by VRAdvisor. You can proceed to analyze the collected data using VRAdvisor.

Thanks Mike for your kind words.

 

# vxstat -g dgname -i interval -c count volumes > filename

The greater than ">" sign will not replace the previous entry as it happens in typical linux command ? or will i be a >> sign ?

Yes. The redirect sign works the same on all OS's.
> filename will overwrite filename.
>> filename will append to filename.

"# vxstat -g dgname -i interval -c count volumes" will run continously until count is reached so even though each line is written after "i" interval, the ">" will mean all the output will go into the file, but if you ran the command again, then it would overwrite.

If you want to see what is being written then you can tail file in another session, or you can use

# vxstat -g dgname -i interval -c count volumes | tee filename

and this will out information, both to the screen and the filename.
