    System resources : how to obtain stats or history ?


    Hello,

    is it possible to obtain resources figures (ie. memory & swap usages) for a (pre-defined) period to obtain stats or history ?

    I would like to check figures during some long (few hours) installation process of specific applications in my company.

    Tools like 'top' or 'free' are great but give (as far as I know..) only a 'picture' of the status.
    Probably other tools allow to trace an history ?

    Thanks,
    Bruno

    Take a look at dstat and in slack there is a utility called "memusage"

    Indeed 'dstat' (and the related plugins) can perfectly do the job.
    Thanks.
