-Most AIX systems record the last week's worth of performance history in **/​etc/​perf/​daily**. The files in this directory are actually binary and it's easier to work with them if they are decoded to CSV format before sending them. The tool [[https://​www.ibm.com/​support/​knowledgecenter/​es/​ssw_aix_72/​com.ibm.aix.cmds5/​topasout.htm?​view=kc|topasout]] is available for this task. The syntax is **topasout -c datafile** where the '​datafile'​ is the file you find in **/​etc/​perf/​daily**. You'll notice that you now have an output file in your current working directory. The file will have a similar name to the data file. This is a record of performance history for the 24 hour period recorded in the file. The sample frequency is every five minutes. This data can be graphed and interpreted for a clearer understanding of the systems performance. ​+Most AIX systems record the last week's worth of performance history in **/​etc/​perf/​daily**.
