Recommended tools and metrics to monitor a Red Hat server

SagerR-5181 225 Reputation points


I am currently managing a Red Hat server and would like to improve its performance by monitoring key metrics such as CPU usage, memory consumption, disk I/O, and network traffic.

Can you recommend any tools or provide tips on how to set up and use them?

Also, any advice on what metrics to focus on for a comprehensive performance assessment would be appreciated.

Thank you for your help!

    Microsoft System Center Operations Manager can monitor the Red Hat servers, you can integrate it into your environment. SCOM provides comprehensive monitoring capabilities for Windows and also offers some level of support for monitoring Linux-based systems, including Red Hat.

    Here's how you can set it up:

    1. Ensure Linux Monitoring Support: Make sure your SCOM environment is set up to support Linux monitoring. This may involve installing additional management packs or components.
    2. Install SCOM Agents on Red Hat Servers: Deploy SCOM agents on your Red Hat servers. These agents will collect data and send it back to your SCOM management server.
    3. Configure Monitoring Settings: Configure the SCOM agents on your Red Hat servers to monitor the desired metrics, such as CPU usage, memory consumption, disk I/O, and network traffic. You can customize monitoring settings based on your specific requirements.
