The Linux Performance Monitoring Course teaches systems administrators practical methodologies for monitoring systems using standard system tools. The course breaks performance into 4 functional components: CPU, Memory, I/O, and Network. The instructor will cover 4 aspects of each component:
1) Component Architecture from a System Administrator Perspective (not developer)
2) How to interpret and correlate the output from standard system tools to identify issues
3) Any relevant tuning options available to the component
4) Case study – demonstrating how to use monitoring skills
