    is there any way on linux machines which can provide the details of CPU usage for the particular time period? say CPU usage for last two days or CPU usage at this time (past day).

    Good Article, and a very informative post. I recently came across a very affordable and easy to use Linux server monitoring tool. I would, however, like to add SeaLion (https://sealion.com/) under Linux server Monitoring Tool.

    I currently use this tool to keep an eye on my servers. It is also cloud based, easy to install and the metrics are displayed very neatly. It’s not very popular but it’s worth a mention.

    You should say “very” instead of “much”. Your usage of the word “much” in this article isn’t proper.

    Not getting the difference between Debian and Linux. Please explain me

    • Ravi Saive says:


      What you would like to know the difference between Debian and Linux (there isn’t any such OS named Linux).

    • sorpigal says:

      The Debian GNU/Linux OS includes a piece, the kernel, which is Linux. Other OSes also exist that use the same kernel (such as Android and more traditional distributions like Fedora or Ubuntu), and others that use different kernels(e.g. OpenBSD, Windows, MacOS).
