A Simple Light-Weight dashboard for Linux !

Of course, am a big fan of Linux. This post is about a monitoring dashboard for linux machines.



There are a-lot of tools for monitoring linux servers, a few out of my knowledge are,

Iostat
Mpstat
Vmstat
Top
Pmap
Strace

We can also name few from network monitoring like 

Tcpdump
Nagios
Netstat, etc

But ! What's there for a comman-man :D ?! In a world of budding open-source lovers, What's there to encourage them ?! (not to scare by asking them this much amount of RAM out of their budget-linux-machine).

I was convinced by this Simple monitoring tool for linux called "linux-dash" [Git Repo]. This is really a very interesting project out of bootstrap with less overhead. (I don't want to go deep in this part).

It gives almost everything a common man wishes to monitor (with a GUI bliss). :-) Worth a try and i hope you enjoy this !
