I updated it and pointed it to the new page at HP. Here's a link to a PDF version of a paper on httperf written by David Mosberger and Tai Jin: "httperf -- a tool for measuring Web server performance". Also, openload is now OpenWebLoad, and I updated the link to its new home page. Debugging Tip: Trace the Process and See What It is Doing with s.

System administrators, diagnosticians and trouble-shooters will find it invaluable for solving problems with programs for which the source is not readily available since they do not need to be recompiled in order to trace them. 20 Linux System Monitoring Tools Every SysAdmin Should Know. Need to monitor Linux server performance?

20 Linux System Monitoring Tools Every SysAdmin Should Know

Try these built-in commands and a few add-on tools. Most Linux distributions are equipped with tons of monitoring. These tools provide metrics which can be used to get information about system activities. You can use these tools to find the possible causes of a performance problem. The commands discussed below are some of the most basic commands when it comes to system analysis and debugging server issues such as: Finding out bottlenecks.Disk (storage) bottlenecks.CPU and memory bottlenecks.Network bottlenecks. #1: top - Process Activity Command The top program provides a dynamic real-time view of a running system i.e. actual process activity.

Remote Administration with DSH. Discover dsh, a utility to run arbitrary commands on any number of remote machines.

Remote Administration with DSH

Previous “Tech Support” columns introduced both Perlbal and Pound, two packages to load balance traffic across multiple machines. Dividing load among several servers provides better performance and increased reliability. However, more machines translates to more tedium. Previously simple actions — such as restarting a service — becomes complex. There are multiple solutions to managing a collection of machines. Dsh is provided under the terms of the GNU Public License and can be downloaded from the dsh home page at Before you install, download, build, and install libdshconfig, which is also available from the dsh home page. To build and install dsh, run the standard commands: Exploitation.
