          On occasion people ask about this. I've never used it. I've been a Solaris user since 1995. There are plenty of other tools.

            Yes I been reading the link you posted. however, I was curios on the acromyn GUDS. Lots of blogs and forum talk about, but not actually spells out the the acromyn, if its at all an acronymn. Just curious to know what it stands for.

            Thanks

              Hmmm... guessing..

              G: General/Graphical
              U: Universal/Utility
              D: Data/dtrace
              S: System/Statistics/Server/Sampler

              ... I'd guess General Utility Data Statistics ... but I am guessing.

                Having spoken to a couple of people, including the current maintainer, we're okay on the G, U, and S. It's the D we can't recall. The original author(s) no longer work for the company so we can't ask them and the original web site is no longer available.

                G - Grand
                U - Unified
                D - Deprivation, Determinitsitc, Divergent, Derivation (best guesses)
                S - Script

                  If I am not wrong, GUDS is a kind of script/tool that collects ample of data, this data is mainly used to analyze performance related stuff.

                  Login to MOS and search for GUDS.
