Linux Performance Tools

This post was originally published on this site

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
