Hey everyone! I am back with another Linux article!😊
Today I will be going over basic commands you can use to monitor system performance! 📈📉💻
The 'top' command is used to display active processes and how much they are using system resources.
lsof stands for list of open files- basically shows you list of files and the processes
'tcpdump' is used to analyze network traffic
'htop' is a lot like top - It's just allows you to monitor system resources or processes. As you can see, it's a bit more fancy than top
'iostat' is a command that is used to monitor input/output devices, by telling you how long the devices have been active.
Displays the processes
Tells you how long the system has been up
'free' shows you the amount of available memory you have.
Used to monitor individual tasks. Great for troubleshooting issues.
'w' tells you information about users logged on and their processes
These commands can be vital for you to monitor your system, so I will be releasing a part 2 soon, as well!😆
