Viewing Server Utilization
Log into Cisco IMC interface.
In the Navigation pane, click the Chassis menu.
In the Chassis menu, click Summary.
The Summary node provides information on Server Properties, Chassis status, Cisco IMC Information, and Server Utilization.
Real-time monitoring of CPU, memory, and I/O utilization in the system is provided interms of Compute Usage Per Second (CUPS) . It is independent of the OS and does not consume CPU resources.
Cisco servers monitors below sensors:
Platform CUPS Sensor - Provides the Computation, Memory, and I/O resource utilization value in the form of a platform CUPS Index.
Core CUPS Sensor - Provides the computation utilization value.
Memory CUPS Sensor - Provides the memory utilization value.
IO CUPS Sensor - Provides the I/O resource utilization value.
These utilization values are obtained by querying the data from a set of dedicated, sideband telemetry counters provided by the platform ingredients (CPU and chipset). These counters are called Resource Monitoring Counters (RMCs).
RMCs provide the real-time information pertaining to the three main domains of platform resources – CPU, memory, and I/O. The utilization information for each of these domains is obtained by aggregating the individual counters at a resource instance level.
In the Server Utilization area, review the following information:
