Lots of good suggestions:

- SE toolkit (
- Orca (
- Proctool
- Typical admin tools  (sar, vmstat, iostat etc)

I've opted to use what I created a while ago, which is just a shell script that grabs the correct vmstat data every 10
seconds and dumps it to a file including a timestamp for each one.  I can later use it to make graphs of RAM, Disk and
CPU usage.  I opted to use Epoch time, which was much easier to query against since I was putting the data in a database.

Thanks to those that helped.  Orca will be on my list of things to check out when I have more time.

Source for my script at the following if you care to see.
