I'm looking for an easy tool, to graphically show the amount of resources being used realtime. Something like htop but with disk IO, memory and network usage as well.

I tried ganglia and the fact that its not real time makes it annoying and the graphs aren't that great quality either.


What about atop?

Launch with disk info

atop -d

Launch with memory info

atop -m

Launch with network info

atop -n

this is the source of the info provided

I just noticed the graphically requirement in your question. I use conky to monitor my local machine. As wikipedia describe it, it is an highly configurable system monitor.

You can configure it in order to display the data you get in graphs. But the quality of those graphs depends on your configuration : )
