Symptoms


While Discovering HP-UX servers, the probes to capture the data of "CPU Speed" and "Total Memory" were not capturing the required details.

 

Release


Jakarta & Kingston 

 

Environment


HP-UX 11 

 

Cause


This is because some of the commands in the HP-UX OS has been depreciated, our probes use the command "'memory_installed_in_machine/D' | adb -k /stand/vmunix /dev/mem | tail -1" to gather the Memory information, and the extensions adb in the command is depreciated, example as below.

 

root # echo 'memory_installed_in_machine/D' | adb -k /stand/vmunix /dev/mem | tail -1

adb: info: Option -k is deprecated.
adb: warning: Trouble reading version string from memory file ...
adb: warning: Object file and memory file may not be matched.
adb: warning: Could not complete object file specific initializtions ...
adb: warning: Proceeding anyway; But some commands may fail.
adb: warning: Unrecognized format character - 'D'.
memory_installed_in_machine:

 

Resolution


Use "machinfo |grep -i Memory" command instead of "memory_installed_in_machine/D' | adb -k /stand/vmunix /dev/mem | tail -1"

Sample Output when executing "machinfo":
