|Last update: September 1, 2010 (RMF PM Version 2.4.61, rmfpms DDS Level 2339)
rmfpms is a modular data gatherer for Linux®. The gathered data can be analyzed using the RMF PM client application or the z/OS Management Facility (5655-S28). The performance data is accessible through XML over HTTP so you can easily exploit it in your own applications.
To learn more about the z/OS parts of RMF PM, please visit this page.

RMF PM was originally developed for OS/390, so you might learn more about this offering using the z/OS-related materials, such as the tutorial (PDF, 226KB), even if you only want to use RMF PM to monitor Linux resources.
Note that Apache performance data is only available if Apache is actually running and properly configured on the monitored image. DASD performance data is only available on System z® linux images with Linux kernel 2.4 and activated DASD performance gathering.
You should activate the archive cronjob as described in the README file that is part of the rmfpms*.tgz file (see below).
Note: This offering is intended for evaluation purposes only and is not a part of any IBM product.
