Performance monitor recommendations?


I'm looking for a piece of performance monitoring software that'll run on Redhat. I tried Ktop and Gtop but they wanted libraries or had other incompatibilities, so I'm hoping that there's something out there (doesn't necessarily need to be freeware) that you guys could recommend that has a GUI, and can monitor CPU mostly, but memory, page swaps, network activity, and other metrics would be great as well.

Thanks in advance!

Depends ... chances are you'll have to install
some other libs for pretty much anything.

Also depends on what your expectations are; do you just want to
be able to see those values at all times, or would you rather be
alerted if the pass a certain threshold?

GKrellm falls in the first category, tools like nagios or mrtg
(both might be a bit of overkill) will give you status-reports
in user-defined intervals, and if you wish send you an e-Mail

If that's too much of a hassle, just write a cron-job that runs
every (couple of) minute(s), and report back the values of interest
using xmessage if something went wrong :)
