This is a short video which demonstrates a “tabbed SSH” tool, persistent remote session features and network performance monitoring utilities that I like to use when doing remote Linux server administration. Using the upcoming Ubuntu Server 14.04 Trusty Tahr LTS, I touch on byobu, htop, nethogs, nload and iptraf while stepping through some of the basic and practical uses of each.
For more tales, stories and practical info about linux, virtualization, cloud, continuous integration, devops, Ubuntu Server, JuJu, MAAS, OpenStack and the such, watch for more on the SYSOPS FABLES channel on YouTube. There is also a playlist which is specific to general Linux server command line administration, where I will post future guides.
More to come – enjoy!
