nmon for Linux Download Binaries

  • Note: to download the source code go to "Compiling nmon" menu item.

Instructions for getting a working binary copy of nmon for Linux:

  1. Select the right platform and them download the matching file.
  2. Unzip the download
  3. Find the right enclosed binary file and start it. The file name should be fairly obvious like the Power SUSE SLES 11 file in "nmon_power_sles11"

The current release is version 14g - I strongly encourage you to use the latest version. If that is not available on your platform, then I recommend you download and compile it yourself
- see Compiling nmon on the left menu. It is very simple with one makefile and one source file.

The older the versions the more bugs.


nmon version 14i was released on 1st August 2013 This included another fix for NFS plus enhanced information about your CPUs on the front panel, and "r" panel and in captured nmon files (particularly for POWER). Take the left menu "Compiling nmon" link for more details. If these don't interest you, please carry on running nmon for Linux 14g.


nmon version 14h was released on 3rd July 2013 This included a fix for POWER based machines when the Entitlement CPU is set below 10% of a CPU - only applies to the POWER7+ processors or POWER7 that has a firmware upgrade like Power 770/780/79. and a fix for a crash if you gather NFS serving stats on certain Linux distributions/versions - one combination effected was RHEL 6.3. If these don't interest you, please carry on running nmon for Linux 14g.

Notes on 64 bit Intel/AMD:

  • nmon for Linux can be compiled 64 bit but it is largely pointless as nmon does not use 64 bit features like using more then 2 GB of RAM.
  • If you have 64 bit processors and you are running a 64 bit Linux then you can still run the 32 bit nmon for Linux but only if you have the 32 bit compatibility Linux libraries installed. For a single server, this is a "no brainer" install from the Linux install media.
  • Some users have thousands of machines like a High Performance cluster and would rather avoid installing the 32 bit compatibility libraries on all nodes.

Notes on exact version match:

  • If you can't find the exactly Linux version you want then try the near it in technology like Kernel release or code stream.
  • The only reason it is complied for different versions of Linux is slight differences in the Libc library - this can cause nmon to refuse to start.
  • Also note the Open SUSE and SLES are closely related and so too is Fedora and Red Hat are related - so you might find one of these works too.
  • Now a quick test of the closest match. Start it online and have a quick look at the CPU, memory, disk and top processes. Any problems should be obvious but make sure you are running some workloads as a screen of zeros does not prove much. I uses: yes >/dev/null - to generate some work.
  • Also worth checking is that data is save to a file OK and run the data through your nmon file analyser o double check the format is OK.
  • If there are problems you need to recompile nmon for you precise Linux version. As nmon is a single file this is not hard.
