How can I collect Systeminformation in RedHat Linux ?

Hi !

in windows there is the so called "System Counter", that provides hundreds of different Counters to collect information about every little aspect of the running system.
Is it possible to collect such information in RedHat too ?

It would be very nice to get a list of available counters and how to activate and control them.

Very interesting for me would be % Cache Hit Rate, % Cache Used und Cached Objects for any service running on my system.

Thanks alot if someone can help me !!

If you are running KDE, you can use KDE System Guard (can be started from the command "ksysguard"). If you open the "sensor browser", you can see a wide range of available sensors for disk usage, memory, network, cpu, etc.

There is a tool called SNMPWLAK that does exactly what I want:

I just have to enter the correct MIB:

snmpwalk -v 2c -c public

But I get an error:

SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.17100 = No more variables left in this MIB View (It is past the end of the MIB tree)

Unfortunately my Linux Knowledge is not good enough too solve this problem

In a next step it would be great to know wich counters are availabe on my system

thanks Gawan
