System + Network Monitoring


Hey guys! What program would you reccomend for monitoring system and network activity on a KDE+Mandrake system? Should I just use KSim with a theme attached to it? Where can I get good themes?? THANKS!!!

For basic stuff: gkrellm
If you want advanced network stats then look at: ethereal

If you want pretty, always-on-screen load/transfer information, you could check out SuperKaramba: http://netdragon.sourceforge.net/

What's the best way to discover if too many people are using your server? And discovering where your network bottlenecks are and when you should expand your servers etc. I used ethereal but it's more for analysing traffic and packet content not so much load measuring... Ya know?

Thanks!

Please don't drag up old threads.

I think you are probably looking for the load averages from the output of:
uptime

Not being a smartass but, should I just start a new thread then even if my question relates to a previous one? When you submit new threads it has a "Has This Already Been Asked?" button. . . Which I tend to use

Yes, it is always best to start a new thread, you are also more likely to get a repsonse. The "Has this been asked" button is useful for looking for answers before you post but in this case there was no answer to your question.
