MEM Utilization on AIX always showing 100%

Mem Util on AIX always shows a value of 100%, which is incorrect.

This is due to a unpublished bug 8526608

MOS Note Performance Tab Memory Utilization On Hosts Targets( monitored by 10.2.0.5 agent ) Shows 100% (Doc ID 849783.1)

This is also true for 11.1 Agents I noticed

I performed the following:

1. cd <agent_home>/sysman/admin/metadata
2. cp host.xml host.xml_20090623
3. edit host.xml and change
.
<ColumnDescriptor NAME=”freeMem” TYPE=”NUMBER” IS_KEY=”FALSE”
TRANSIENT=”TRUE” COMPUTE_EXPR=”(freeMemRaw / 1024.0)” HELP=”NO_HELP”>
.
to
.
<ColumnDescriptor NAME=”freeMem” TYPE=”NUMBER” IS_KEY=”FALSE”
TRANSIENT=”TRUE” COMPUTE_EXPR=”(freeMemRaw )” HELP=”NO_HELP”>
.
.
4. restart agent.

For me this solved the problem

  1. This issues is on 12c too and the work around work perfectly, just one point, the file you need to edit is the hostAIX.xmlp instead jut host.xml.
