I've spent the majority of the morning looking for documentation on OS Stats collection on Linux.

Specifically I'm looking to collect network traffic stats, DB stats and I/O stats on a Linux server.

Linux Server:
IBM Netfinity
2.8ghz
2gb ram
Redhat Linux
Weblogic 8.1 sp3
Apache 2.0.51

If you have usefull links to send me to or some documention you can email me I'd appreciate it.

Thanks

You can get a great deal of information on the OS through the /proc filesystem. Your DB information will probably have to come through a vendor-supplied API.

Ess,

Thanks for the information.
I should have posted a follow up after I did some more investigating:

Check out the following links:
http://perso.wanadoo.fr/sebastien.godard/
This is a free tool which can be run on the individual machines to
collect stats which will begin to help identify issues at the OS level.

http://edocs.bea.com/wls/docs81/perform/
This is documentation specificially to Weblogic to help identify and fix performance issues.

I haven't tried using the tools from the first link. I'd rather not install additional software or run third-party tools on my environments. The second link seems way more intensive and I will most likely follow that direction.

Again, thanks.

Rosenquest
