Does anyone have any monitoring commands they like to use? I currently use top -s to monitor what's currently happening and occasionally sar -q to see if the server had any high loads at certain points.
Which distro are you running? (Debian, RedHat, SuSE, Ubuntu, etc...)
Don't give up so soon! It's easy to install them, e.g. if you're on fedora the package names are the same as the program names, so just find them in Add/Remove Software (or do yum install vnstat iostat).By the looks of it, I won't be testing out either of them any time soon.
