OS statistics for Disk IO, Network and Paging/Paging rates are not working. No data is displayed.
Paging and Scanning Rates:
To obtain Paging and Scanning Rates from Linux Kernel 2.6 is not available. This should be available in the next Spotlight on Oracle release.
The parsing of the underlying data is going to be problematic as the output returned from the "netstat -i" command does not have data delimited [separated] in some of the columns - this is a Linux kernel bug which has been reported by others in the LINUX world.
To diagnose create a traced support bundle and look at the Network.txt file. Here an example from the Network.txt:
Iface MTU Met RX-OK RX-ERR RX-DRP RX-OVR TX-OK TX-ERR TX-DRP TX-OVR Flgeth0 1500 0493449960 0 0 0531130914 0 0 0 BMsRU
The number 0493449960 belongs to the columns Met and RX-OK but the number is not delimited. Also the number 0531130914 belongs to the columns RX-OVR and TX-OK and even this one is not delimited.
In the extreme rebooting the Linux server will fix this problem for a time as it will reset the counters.
Disk IO chart:
1. Shutdown Spotlight
2. Backup the UNIX.xml file in the .\Spotlight\plug-ins\SoO directory
3. Download the attached Unix.zip and unzip it. Copy the extracted UNIX.xml into the above SoO directory
4. Restart SoO
Waiting for fix in a future release of Spotlight on Oracle.
