Newer Linux systems may have different/better ways to do that.

That would probably be "vmstat 5". It gives you processes, memory, paging, block IO, traps, cpu activity. "vmstat -D" gives you disk stats. You can also use "netstat -tcs" to snapshot the number of established tcp connections on the machine - that might give you a true indication of the number of connections actually being served.
