Linux Server Profiling

A session at Open Source Bridge 2009

Thursday 18th June, 2009

7:00pm to 8:30pm (PST)

A number of open source tools exist that make profiling Linux servers easier. These tools include traditional Unix utilities like "sar" and "iostat", but they also include some tools that go deep into the processors and I/O subsystems.

This session will present a tutorial on some of these open source tools. I’ll show you how to get them, how to install them, how to run them, and how to interpret their output. The tools should work on any of the major Linux distributions, but the focus will be on the three most popular community-based distributions, Ubuntu, openSUSE and Fedora.
