Subject: [gentoo-user] Advice on system monitoring

1 I haven't yet needed to do this kind of system monitoring, so I'm very
2 much a newbie here.
4 Let's start with that dual-xeon box I was using to benchmark "emerge
5 -e @world", figure I'm looking for how better to tune my MAKEOPTS and
6 EMERGE_DEFAULT_OPTS variables, and assume I'd like to get more
7 information about the following factors:
9 * What was the 1m, 5m 15m load averages?
10 * What were the similar averages for CPU spent in user time, system
11 time and I/O wait?
12 * What was network usage like? (I have a caching proxy server on the
13 network, so even if distfiles are lost on-system, well, a cache hit
14 transfers at up to around 50MB/s. It'd be better, except for read
15 performance limitations on the router box, and write performance
16 limitations on the local machine)
17 * What was the temperature of each CPU core, RAM module and hard
18 drive? (Not so relevant for improving system performance, but still of
19 interest.)
21 I'd like to have a web interface I could navigate to which would show
22 graphs of these counters.
