Good Monitoring Tools

From JoeHacker

Everyone knows about the top command. Here are some of my favorite monitor tools and command options.

Monitor hard drive activity and how may megabytes are read/written every 5 seconds.

iostat -m 5

A better top command


Command to show only processes writing to the hard drive.

iotop -o

Shows network activity on eth0

iftop -i eth0

Another useful top command
