I am using GBL_SWAP_SPACE_UTIL to monitor Swap space utilization on servers with threshold as 95%. When an alert was generated for threshold breach on one of our Sun OS server , i logged to that particular server and run the top copmmand to check the swap utilization. Surprise to found that Swap utilization was 0% with below values
32G total swap, 32G free swap, 0.0% swap.
Even i check in Performance Manager which shows the value greater than 95%.
Please let me know how if the metric is calculation wrong value or thr is some caluculation whihc I am missing here.
I verified this on other few Sun servers as well but the same caluuclation issue.
Please help me to understand this swap utilization calculation metric as our Unix team is questioning us.
