RE: Statistical Analysis on the IBM i



fixed

Midrange Performance Group (MPG) has a product that produces a variety of graphs and reports.
One is transaction total.
I've used MPG for many years, product has helped identify performance issues, helped size upgrades, and also gives a good historical usage of all categories.

I think SAS runs on the iSeries, you may have to run it in unix environment..you could always run AIX in an LPAR and it does run on AIX just fine.

As for real time, you may want to consider a CMN file and other streaming data file methods or set up the devices for polling...consider your communications issues and performance issues as well.

As for writing mean/median/mod/std.dev/simple linear regression/etc/ been there, done that... you can do most of those stats in a single pass easily.

Thought about writing a stats packager for the as/400 years ago but never had the time...should have done it while PL/I was still around :)

All,

I'm curious as to rather anyone is doing statistical analysis on the i.

In particular, I'm interested in running some analysis in near real time at the order line item level; possibly with models built offline

It doesn't appear that there's anything built into the OS or the available programming languages.

Do any statistics packages exist that run on the i?

Thanks!
Charles
