What is the best tools for performance data gathering and analysis?

Dear Guru,

IHAC who complaint that his CentOS is getting performance issue.

I have to help him out of there.

Could you please tell me which tools is better to gathering the whole system performance data?

I would like the tools could be used to generate the report base on the performance data we gathered by that tools.

Thanks a lot!

Use top, vmstat command for the start point, for network you can use wireshark or tcpdump command, or even if you want to examine network security nmap command.
