How to use top and similar tools to pinpoint system problems

On Thursday, January 27th at 16:00 UTC we welcome back Mulyadi Santosa (the_hydra). You may recall his first class which was very well-received on Understanding fields in /proc/meminfo, logs available here. This time he has come to present a class on How to use top and similar tools to pinpoint system problems.

This class is loosely based on his articles Uncover the Meaning of top’s Statistics and Using Top More Efficiently. So take this opportunity to learn direct from Mulyadi, and ask any additional questions you may have!

The class will take place in #ubuntu-classroom on (#ubuntu-classroom-chat for questions).
