Metrics for one Linux monitor

What metrics do I get per Linux server monitor?

For a single Linux server monitor, you will be able to monitor the following metrics to ensure its continued performance:
  • Load average
  • CPU utilization - overall CPU usage, CPU usage by cores, interrupts and context switches, CPU idle time, nice time, wait time, steal time, system time, hardware & software interrupts time, user space time
  • Memory utilization - overall memory usage, swap memory utilization, used memory utilization, memory pages (In/Out/Fault), installed memory
  • Memory break-up - free physical memory (MB), free swap memory (MB)
  • Disk idle and busy percentage
  • Disk usage with capacity plan
  • Recent events
  • Top process by CPU and memory
  • System statistics including login count, total services and processes running
  • Processes - stats on CPU and memory usage, thread and handle count, and the number of instances
  • Disks - Average and individual disk usage, disk partition details, disk (I/O)
  • Network stats on data sent and received, input and output traffic, bandwidth, packets sent and received, error packets
  • Resource Checks - monitor files, directories, syslogs, URLs and ports
In addition to this, you can monitor any data that you want by using Site24x7's 50+ ready-to-use plugin integrations, or write your own plugin script using Python and Shell. Not just monitoring, the performance data is presented in customizable dashboards and ready-to-understand performance reports; and for every downtime a detailed root cause analysis (RCA) report is triggered and sent to the user based on alerting contact.
