Want to know what's really going on with your server? Then you need to know these essential commands. Once you've mastered them, you'll be well on your way to being an expert Linux system administrator.
Depending on the Linux distribution, you can run pull up much of the information that these shell commands can give you from a GUI program. SUSE Linux, for example, has an excellent, graphical configuration and management tool, YaST, and KDE's KDE System Guard is also excellent.
However, it's a Linux administrator truism that you should run a GUI on a server only when you absolutely must. That's because Linux GUIs take up system resources that could be better used elsewhere. So, while using a GUI program is fine for basic server health checkups, if you want to know what's really happening, turn off the GUI and use these tools from the Linux command shell..........

"Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating? It is the exact opposite of the stupid hedonistic Utopias that the old reformers imagined. A world of fear and treachery and torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself. Progress in our world will be progress toward more pain." -George Orwell, 1984
