A short post for now to answer a question that came up. In post two of this series I included graphs of performance data extracted from pButtons. I was asked off-line if there is a quicker way than cut/paste to extract metrics for
mgstat etc from a pButtons .html file for easy charting in Excel.
pButtons compiles data it collects into a single html file to make it easier to send to WRC and review the collated data. However, especially for pButtons run over long collection times like 24 hours, some of the time based data like mgstat, vmstat etc is easier to review graphically to look for trends or patterns
