Monitoring resource usage in Linux

Three packages I found in Debian: dstat, ifstat, systat – allow to show cumulative statistics, but not on per-process basis.

Here’s an interesting discussion on what can an cannot be done with Linux: http://mirror.hamakor.org.il/archives/linux-il/01-2005/13574.html

One pointer is laptop-mode (Documentation/laptop-mode), although for different reasons the information there might not be accurate.

A nice summary on linux profiling: http://www.cs.utk.edu/~mucci/latest/pubs/LCSC2004.pdf
