Chapter 10. Networking with Linux > Monitoring the System and Network

Monitoring the System and Network

As with any other operating system platform, Red Hat Linux provides a number of tools for viewing system performance and also for capturing data packets on the network to analyze network traffic. For example, you can monitor system resources using the Red Hat System Monitor. To start the monitor from the KDE desktop, select the KDEO menu, then System Tools, then System Monitor. The monitor provides two tabs. The Process Listing tab allows you to view all running processes. It can also be used to end processes that have locked up or stalled. The System Monitor tab of the System monitor shows you CPU usage and memory /swap usage, as shown in Figure 10.20.

Figure 10.20. Use the System Monitor to view CPU and memory usage.
