Performance monitoring

Shorts notes on performance monitoring :

  • Nagios : not a good idea. Nagios isn’t made for this even if there is a chapter about “Performance Data”, it is only seen as a side effect of service monitoring. ie : how did service monitoring perform.
  • KSysguard : looks good : client/server application. Client uses KDE.
  • Moodss : looks good too. Client/server application. Client uses TCL. Has some intelligent statistic processing.
  • sysstat (sar/sadc) : command line tool. The standard way. Less invading than the others I guess. Only recently can the data be easily formated : sadf.

For MS-Windows, you can use perfmon : Performance monitor in the administrative tools.
