    Will gnuplot be added to the AIX Toolbox? I was using it to plot simple things like comparing how many P8 systems I have compared to P9 or how many systems at AIX 7.1 versus 7.2. I had installed it from another source but upgraded to DNF a few months ago, so out it went. Are there any other alternatives for creating graphs for simple comparisons such as this?

    Speaking only for myself, I've not used GNUplot in a *very* long time.

    The Python language has several different facilities for producing graphs, depending on your requirements and approach. This is a very popular tool among people who automate working with lots of data, and it's already in the toolbox. is a good place to start for graphing in Python.

    Hi Frederick, 

    Currently there is no plan to make gnuplot available on AIX toolbox.
    AS Stephen told there are newer tools (python based) for plotting.
    We might bring matplotlib on AIX toolbox.
