Re: Performance & Monitoring Tools in Linux OS

There are some great open source tools available too. That expand beyond the simple standard unix/linux tools you find by default.

these are a few of my favorites;

monit - http://mmonit.com/
cacti - http://www.cacti.net/
nagios - http://www.nagios.org/

enjoy!

Iostat Sar and PS come in the systat tools with linux. Hp provides tlviz and csvpng as analysis tools. Tlviz and Csvpng were written for Openvms and were ported to Linux and HP-UX and windows because they are so powerful. These tools are the Openvms Engineering tools of choice. Data conversion packages are available making these tools available for linux using Iostat, Sar and PS. Corporate sites now using these tools with Linux.

In the link you provided http://pagesperso-orange.fr/sebastien.godard/ you will see advertisements for commercial packages. Some are very expensive. Depending on how many systems are managed on the site, and the size of those systems, and how much free time the system administrator or administrators have determines if commercial packages or professional help must be brought in. Some large sites have dedicated people assigned to capacity planning and trouble shooting slow response problems. Besides correlation engines being used check out this URL to see just how much data can be captured on a large system that would be impossible to screen manually especially if multiple systems are involved.

Re: Performance & Monitoring Tools in Linux OS

Try collectl. It provides a lot more functionality that most tools with very fine granularity and very low overhead. Some of the largest linux clusters in the world run it.

To read a little more about performance monitoring and other things High Performance Computing related, have a look at the new HP Cluster Edge Blog at http://www.communities.hp.com/online/blogs/hpcclusteredge/default.aspx
