15 Command Line Tools to Monitor Linux Performance


Hi,

15 Command Line Tools to Monitor Linux Performance;
Quote:
It’s really very tough job for every System or Network administrator to monitor and debug Linux System Performance problems every day. After being a Linux Administrator for 5 years in IT industry, I came to know that how hard is to monitor and keep systems up and running. For this reason, we’ve compiled the list of Top 15 frequently used command line monitoring tools that might be useful for every Linux/Unix System Administrator. These commands are available under all flavors of Linux and can be useful to monitor and find the actual causes of performance problem. This list of commands shown here are very enough for you to pick the one that is suitable for your monitoring scenario.

Thanks again for this pointer! I was using only roughly 1/3 of those commands on a regular basis.

I see that I cannot mark a useful post, perhaps because this is Linux-General. What a nonsense!

OP in any forum here at LQ cannot be marked as helpful. If you wish to give Rep then use the scale icon within members panel on the left.
