Linux Admin Tool


Does Linux have an administrative tool that could be used for viewing and/or configuring hardware, monitoring processes, CPU and memory. Similiar to the SAM tool and the glancePlus tool used with HP-UX. I tried the setup tool but it wasn't quite what I was looking for. Sorreee for the simplistic question, but hey, I'm ..learning..

Re: Linux Admin Tool

I agree. Webmin is great for people just getting started, and for routine maintenance.

Filling out the distro section of your profile might help people point out cool tools you may already have on your system. Sometimes the best tool is right under your fingertips, just waiting to be noticed.

And there is nothing wrong with being new to Linux. Unlike a lot of forums you will rarely be chastised for being a here , unless you cross-post or ask why there is no SuSE forum.

Thumbs up

Finlay, Pcghost, Thanks guyz for the information. I've downloaded the rpm for webmin and have got it installed. From what I've seen so far, WEBMIN ROCKS! This is what I was looking for and then some...

I'm grateful for the assistance and I've updated my profile to include my distro (thks again Pcghost!)--see, it's the little things that matter--

Oh, and we almost went with the SuSe Enterprise Server 8, but opted for Redhat Enterprise AS instead. Wasn't my decision, so wat is the deal with SuSe? Not as robust as RedHat?

if this is for a company it would be a neat idea to check this out:

Expense it as an administrative tool, awesome book, it tells you what commands and files webmin runs.

Thanks Finlay. The book is on order. I browsed chapter four, even though it was about users. It seems pretty thorough. I got a couple of O'Reilly Linux books that should help out too. I need all the help I can get!
