I've recently setup a new apache webserver with the basic LAMP stack (PHP / MySQL / Apache). I'm curious what kind of performance monitoring solutions are typical -- really, I'm simply looking for a good way to gauge whether the host I've setup is beefy enough to handle the load put on it.
For now, I've been checking the load on the server every so often with the uptime command as to examine the historical averages. I've also been checking the apache server-status page (which is only visible locally).
Anyway, I don't feel as though these are really providing what I'm looking for. I'd appreciate any advice and / or nudges in the right direction.
Thanks a bunch!
