Information Gathering -> Monitoring: Simple system metrics

Risk and Opportunity

Risk: Without simple metrics analysis of incidents are hard. In case an application uses a lot of CPU from time to time, it is hard for a developer to find out the source with Linux commands.
Opportunity: Gathering of system metrics helps to identify incidents and specially bottlenecks like in CPU usage, memory usage and hard disk usage.
