Tutorial quote: A common task for System Administrators is to monitor and care for a server. That's fairly easy to do at a moment's notice, but how to keep a record of this information over time? One way to monitor your server is to use the Sysstat package.

It's fairly easy to install too, since it is included as a package on many distributions.
