Virtual I/O Server Advisor

Virtual I/O Server Advisor


The VIOS advisor is an application that runs within the customer's VIOS for a user specified amount of time (hours), which polls and collects key performance metrics before analyzing results and providing a health check report and proposes changes to the environment or areas to investigate further.
The goal of the VIOS advisor is not to provide another monitoring tool, but instead have an expert system view performance metrics already available to the customer and make assessments and recommendations based on the expertise and experience available within the IBM systems performance group.


  • Download vios_advisor.zip from the link provided in download section
  • Unzip vios_advisor.zip on a workstation that has a web browser.
  • ftp vios_advisor onto the VIOS you wish to monitor. (place in any directory)
  • chmod +x vios_advisor to give the application execution priviliges.

Steps to run VIOS Advisor

The application "vios_advisor" takes only one paramter, which is the duration of the the monitoring period, in minutes.
For example,to monitor the VIOS for 30 minutes run:
vios_advisor 30
Usage Statement:
Usage: vios_advisor
Recommended monitoring time = >= 30 min
Minimum monitoring time = 5 min (only recommended for settings verification)
Maximum monitoring time = 1440 min (24 hours)
