Hi folks,


I have been struggling over the last few days to figure out the best way to answer a customer question regarding workload characterisation on an application.  I know we can use the processes probe to get alot of info regarding general system resource usage but what I am stuck on is looking for disk transactions and what disk is being hit by what application.  They also want to know how to handle agile disk addressing.


The question has come about by the customer wanting to run capacity planning analytics with their Athene software and at the moment their HP Openview spys can get all the information they need for this but it seems to me that this type of information is out of our reach OOTB.


Am I missing something basic here or can anyone help describe how we can do ths?
