    Post Command-line resource monitoring?

    Hi all. I have a server running apache, a few samba shares and a few other things, nothing too special. I'm running it in MS Virtual Server 2005 if it matters at all.

    Anyhow, I'm looking for some kind of command-line resource monitors to monitor CPU usage, network usage, memory, etc. Something similar to gkrellm, but for the command-line. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Thank you in advance!

    You can use the command 'top' for CPU, memory, swap etc, but it doesn't monitor the network.

    You can install htop and try that one also. I like it a little better myself. It still doesn't do network monitoring to my knowledge.

    Ah, thank you both very much. This covers everything but networking, as you both said. Still looking for something that will cover that, if anyone has any ideas.

    Yep, top for process, cpu and memory and iftop for network interfaces.

    Ah, iftop! I should have guessed. Thank you all very much, these are exactly the tools I needed.

    You can also use ntop.
