Recently I came across this graphic showing various Linux Performance Tools (Thanks Brendan Gregg) and I didn’t realize until then how many I have been using it on a regular basis. Brendan has done a wonderful job packing so much information about Linux performance.
Isn’t it all about having the right tools for the job that makes a difference, especially when it comes to performance troubleshooting or tuning?
My favorite and goto tools are
vmstat iostat netstat strace lsof top ps sar ethtool dmesg mpstat
