Kernel tunables: Number of threads

Distribution: official part of Check_MK
License: GPL
Supported Agents: HPUX

This check allows for monitoring of admin-tunable kernel limits on HP-UX systems that support the "kcusage" command. The command should be available from HP-UX 11.20 to the current 11.31.

The check uses the output of kcusage -l for monitoring the current number of threads (nkthread). Per default this check is always OK, but you can set levels for the used percentage.


hpux_tunables generates one check per host for each of the supported tunables.
