With these tools you can track different characteristics of your server such as RAM (Random Access Memory), CPU Load Average and Disk Usage. Information about php version and operating system is also displayed.
What is RAM (Random Access Memory)?
RAM (Random Access Memory) is the hardware in a computing device where the operating system (OS), application programs and data in current use are kept so they can be quickly reached by the device's processor. RAM is the main memory in a computer. It is much faster to read from and write to than other kinds of storage, such as a hard disk drive (HDD), solid-state drive (SSD) or optical drive.
Random Access Memory is volatile. That means data is retained in RAM as long as the computer is on, but it is lost when the computer is turned off. When the computer is rebooted, the OS and other files are reloaded into RAM, usually from an HDD or SSD.
What is CPU Load Average?
Average load - the average value of the system load over a certain period of time, as a rule, is displayed in the form of three values, which represent the average values for the last 1, 5 and 15 minutes, the lower the better. On UNIX, this is the average of the computational work that the system does.
What is Disk Usage?
Disk usage (DU) refers to the portion or percentage of computer storage that is currently in use. It contrasts with disk space or capacity, which is the total amount of space that a given disk is capable of storing. Disk usage is often measured in kilobytes (KB), megabytes (MB), gigabytes (GB) and/or terabytes (TB).
