Question Linux performance monitoring graphical / GUI tools


Hi Everyone,

I'd like to know what's the most publicly installed or widely used Linux system performance monitoring software that is available and compatible with Ubuntu 64 bit ?

I've installed Nagios in place for availability report but for the monitoring performance of more than 10 it is impractical to open SSH console running top for each server.

what I'd like to monitor is:
1. Disk space issue.
2. resource hog.
3. failed root / sudo login attempt.

any kind of suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

you can do this with nagios too, if you are allowed to
run a remote agent like nrpe on the servers.
for example check_logfiles is really great plugin,
you can use it together with nrpe and nagios. It is quite powerful.
Everything else that is not covered by already existing plugins can be scripted and easily integrated with nrpe.

Anotherway is to export this data via snmp and use cacti to store and display it.

thanks for the reply Norbert, how can I deploy Nagios automated push install into several Linux machine ?
In Windows i know how to do it through Group Policy Object but not through Linux (-_-)

dude,

use cfengine to manage your number of servers. there you can push the template to all the other machines. Else you have to configure the nrpe.cfg manually for all the monitored servers.

A possibly easier way than cfengine is puppet.
You can also build deb or rpm packages for your servers for easy deployment, depends on
your existing infrastructure what the best is.
Btw, you don't have to install the Nagios core itself on your servers, nagios resides only
on the central monitoring server. what you deploy is nrpe and nagios plugins and
if necessary self written checks.
