Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

What's you're description of slow response? Is it seconds, minutes, hours.. ? Need some more details to help better understand the problem. Some of the other things you can look out for is DNS resolution, ReverseDNS and so on by just taking a guess not knowing much more about you're setup. What type of php applications are you using? What type of network is this on, speed and NIC type? More details get better replies.
What aspects would you like to monitor? Services availability and system stats (Monit)? Network specs (Nagios)? Is this somehow related to your other thread named "server slow"? Why write a server monitoring shell script? Searching LQ, Freshmeat.net or SourceForge.net doesn't show anything usable?
check out http://howtoforge.com/server_monitoring_monit_munin . This is a tutorial on how to setup munin and monit. These two software packages will monitor the system resources and also monitor your services to make sure they are all up and done correctly. that should help you.
