System Performance monitor?


Hello, I'm getting the ball rolling in the learning dept. and need some help. I've loaded Gentoo on a dual P3 machine that is now a LOT slower after finishing the install than it was durring the install. I want to see if both Procs are being used, how much is being used, memory available/used.. just a basic system performance monitor.

I'm working exclusivly from the command line and have 0/Zero packages installed currently (looking to build an internet server from scratch).

I'm sure that this is available in the basic functionality of the kernel but I can't, for the life of me, find any information about it. Help is much appreciated (as always).. and TIA.

-----Edit-----

Err... okay, I found "TOP", which gives me most of what I'm looking for - but can I be sure both procs are enabled/working?

Okay, and now I found that if I cat /proc/cpuinfo it tells me what I've got. Only 1 CPU is enabled... great, need to figgure out how to fix that.

Guess I answered my own dumb questions (funny that it happenes within minutes of posting a question, eh?)
