In this session I will give a tour of the more usfull tools Linux users and administrators have available to them for monitoring Linux systems. We will look at SAR, ksar, top, nmon, tcpdump, netstat, iostat among others. This will lead into a discussion of the most common causes of performance problems, how to identify them and possible fixes.
