Interrupts, softirqs, and softnet are all critical parts of the Linux kernel that can impact system performance. In this blog post, we'll explore their usefulness, and discuss how to monitor them using Netdata for both bare-metal servers and VMs.
The different states of system processes are essential to understanding how a computer system works. Each state represents a specific point in a process's life cycle and can impact system performance and stability.
At Netdata, we’re committed to trying to make Netdata work as well as possible for our users. Sometimes though, that means changing things in ways that aren’t exactly seamless. Such a change is coming soon for users of our native DEB and RPM packages, and this blog post will explain what’s happening, why we’re doing it, and what it means for our users.
Monitoring KSM (Kernel Same-page Merging) performance at deduping memory shared across VMs.
