To answer that we'll likely need answer to the following questions.

What distro are you using?
Is the box a server a desktop or an embedded device?
Is it headless?

Are you looking for a command line tool, a desktop tool or a daemon?

If a command line tool are you looking for something to constantly
monitor performance i.e. a babysitter, or are you just looking for
something to report current stats and immediately exit?

If a daemon do you want it to monitor and generate reports for later
review, or simply alert when there are issues?

Are there any specific characteristics you are trying to monitor or do
you just want a detailed system health report?
