TechTip: Gather Linux Performance Data with nmon

Use this open-source tool to view from one screen all the stats about CPU utilization, disk and network I/O, kernel performance, and more!

max_hetrickWritten by Max Hetrick

The very handy nmon utility measures live system-performance statistics on Linux, as well as gathers system information and details. The nmon project was originally an internal IBM project for monitoring AIX systems but has since been released under the GPL open-source license. The tool's original project page can be browsed from IBM's Web site. This tip looks at nmon from the Linux angle.

Everyone likes utilities—at least everyone likes to try utilities; sometimes they even stick around and become good friends. Then, over time, something changes and you part ways. Often, it's hard to say goodbye to your old buddy, even though your new acquaintance may offer the thrill of new powers and freedoms. The features that your new companion lacks, however—which may have been present in your old partner—can be cause for some regret.
