    Hi
    How to find the following in SOLARIS


    1)Check filesystems free space and logs are being archived or cleaned up on a regular basis
    df -h ( df -k)
    About whats logs you write ?
    2)Verify backups are being performed
    It's depend of installed backup software. Read Guide for your backup software.
    3)We also check the Operating System error logs for any issues
    more /var/adm/messages
    4)Check the allocation of the paging space and it’s % used
    vmstat 1 2

    But, for monitoring system, possible, best not write you own scripts. Use special monitoring software.
    Sun Managment Center for example or any other.

    Regards.

    vmstat 1 2 doesnot shows me the % of usage..., But I need the % usage of the allocation of paging space

    and by default is there any internal backup verification commands in Solaris...!

    vmstat - give you information about using swap and physizcal memory.

    swap -s give information about using swap ( virtaul memory)

    prtconf - give information how many physical memeory installed.


    For calculate % - write you own script.


    Solarsi not have bundled backup system. It's have some comands, that can used for backup. ( tar; cpio; ufsdump).

    Nobody can know what used on your site.
    Are you sure that you have backup and have what need verify ?

    Regards.

    HI.

    It's very difficult say via forum. You have one system or many ? You have Library or tape drive ?

    Check crontab for possible backup commands.
    Check for possible installed backup software.

    pkgchk | grep -i backup
    can you please get me the script For calculate %
    Try use this:
    #!/bin/sh
     /usr/sbin/swap -s | awk '{
     u=substr($9,1,length($9)-1)
     a=substr($11,1,length($11)-1)
     printf("SWAP USAGE: %3.2f%\n",100*u/(u+a))
    }'
    #!/bin/sh
    MEM=`/usr/sbin/prtconf |grep "Memory size:" | awk '{ print $3 * 1024 } '`
    M_FREE=`vmstat 1 2 | tail -1 | awk ' { print $5 }' `
    echo $MEM $M_FREE | awk ' { printf ( "PMEM USAGE: %3.2f%\n", ($1-$2)*100/$1 ) }'
