Re: how to check the load of different services

top shows you nothing because these products are not using any cpu.

gtop might let you isolate the daemon process and show you no load at all.

If there are no vstpd or squid processes waiting for the CPU you will see no load.

Now, fire up a couple of big ftp jobs and downloads on the internet, you'll start to see some squid and ftpd related processes.

You could try using ps too. For example:

ps uaxw | head -1 ; ps uaxw | egrep 'vsftpd|squid'
