    is there a command to check what is being used resource wise on a linux box, like disk use, ram, CPU time and the like, cos the linux based filter / proxy box at work keeps maxing out, but aint giving a clue to what is being stressed (apart from the ram which it says there is a shed load free)

    theres a command line utility called top that should provide you with all the info your after on the various daemons running on your server.
    Just type top at the command line :)

    There is also 'df' and 'free'. Though mem output can be deceiving if you're not familiar with how to read it. Will turn up a link for that in a bit.

    EDIT: Replaced 'typo' of mem with free.

    Here's a link that explains the output of free

    If you want something to sit on your desktop, try gkrellm.
    The program will allow you to monitor a remote machine with ease.
    There are many additional plugins available that allow you to display all kinds of things, including lm sensors, the nix answer to motherboard monitor.
