”R” code kata

This started as a ‘R’ code kata. I came across some Nmon reports from a AIX machine.

There is an nmon analyzer too available in IBM’s website.

The goal here is to learn to write ‘R’ code to ‘grep’ for lines that have information for CPU’s like this

CPU01,T0001,7.6,28.9,1.3,62.1
CPU02,T0001,4.9,6.5,1.1,87.5
CPU03,T0001,2.4,2.1,0.4,95.1
CPU04,T0001,2.9,1.4,0.8,94.9

Not only that. I also want to draw graphs for individual CPU’s and find if there are correlations between different CPU utilizations. This type of analysis is described in some papers published by ‘Computer Measurement Group’. I don’t have the links now but I plan to post more about this along with the graphs.

At this time this is not a serious performance planning measure. But it should be possible to use ‘R’ code to create a good nmon analyzer report.

This initial version of the code executes but it is not complete.

YAML configuration

path:
 input : D:\R\R-3.0.0\bin\MACHINE_130525_0000.csv
 output : D:\R\R-3.0.0\bin

Main code


library(yaml)
library(stringr)

# Set to load the configuration file.
# It might be set elsewhere also.
this.dir <- dirname(parent.frame(2)$ofile) 
setwd(this.dir) 

# Read nmon report and filter CPU utilization
filelist.read <- function(){
	config = yaml.load_file("config.yml")
	print(config$path$input)
	output <-(config$path$output)
	nmon <-file(config$path$input, "r")
	fileConn<-file(paste(output,"\\output.txt", sep = ""),"w")

	files <- NULL

	while(length(line <- readLines(nmon, 1)) > 0) {
		files <- line.filter( line )
		if (length(files) != 0) {
			writeLines(files, fileConn)
			#print(files)
			files <- NULL
		}
	}
	close(nmon)
	close(fileConn)
}

#filter based on a regular expression
line.filter <- function(line){
	filteredline <- grep("^CPU", line, value = TRUE)
	return (filteredline)
}


#Write each CPU's utilization data into a 
#separate file
filelist.array <- function(n){
  cpufile <- list()
  length(cpufile) <- n
  for (i in 1:n) {
    cpufile[[i]] <- paste("output", i, ".txt", sep = "") 
    print(cpufile[i])	
  }
}
#Write each CPU's utilization into a 
#separate file
filelist.array <- function(n){
         cpufile <- list()
         length(cpufile) <- n
         for (i in 1:n) {
            cpufile[[i]] <- paste("output", i, sep = "")
            print(cpufile[i])
         }
}

RUnit

library(RUnit)

#Sample test
test.filelist.array <- function() {
	filelist.array(3)
}

RUnit test runner

library(RUnit)

# Set to load sources and test code
# properly.
this.dir <- dirname(parent.frame(2)$ofile) 
setwd(this.dir) 

source('nmon.R')
source('unitTests/nmontestcase.R')
test.filelist.array()
