Hi,

I am new to debian and I'm looking for some kind of performance monitor that

gives an instantaneous readout of typical performance indicators like

memory, cpu and network bandwidth. it should be terminal based if at all

possible as the machine is hosted and doesn't have X installed.

Along the same lines, I'm also looking for something that can display

details of my hardware configuration (physical RAM, network speed, RAID

configuration etc)

it doesn't really matter whether it's part of the standard distro or not - I

only have a very minimal install at the moment (what a refreshing change

from all that redhat bloat :-) so whatever it is I'll have to download and

install it.

Many thanks

Andy

      Sounds like you're looking for top. It breaks down by CPU and load

      average and gives a list of the top processes as well.

      You might want to check out an rrdtool based graphing system. I use

      lrrd/munin but there are others like cricket and etc. You can view the

      output in a local web browser.

      Also, check out ntop and top for console based tools.
