Monitoring Per-Process Statistics

It is very valuable to know which processes are using the most CPU time or other resources on a remote machine. The rpc.rstatd daemon, which we used earlier, does not provide per-process information. Commercial software, such as Measureware, requires the installation of potentially buggy remote agents to report per-process information, and keeps its data in a proprietary format. It is often unacceptable to install unknown agents on important production machines, and it is never to your advantage to have your data locked into a proprietary format. Here we look at alternate freeware for collecting the same data—first, at a web server, and second, at telnet from a Perl script.
