Linux performance monitoring

From its open source origins, Linux has steadily gained traction as a server operating system for use in all types of industries. Some Linux servers run mission-critical applications that have in place performance benchmarks and SLA requirements. Any performance degradation in these applications can result in lost revenue and user churn. To mitigate this, robust application management service software is used to monitor and tune the performance of applications running on these servers. At the server level, Linux server monitoring is implemented to optimize Linux performance. Linux performance monitoring and optimization can also yield overall improvements in the performance of applications running in the servers.
