On my shared server, I can easily tell how much disk space and bandwidth I have, using the control panel. (I'm never close to using either up.)

On the command line I can periodically check how much RAM and CPU I'm using (e.g. with this script I got from somewhere ages ago, maybe on here).

But I'm trying to get an idea of how much capacity I have for adding further sites to my server. I'd love to be able to see RAM and CPU usage over time, rather than only whenever I happen to log in and run that script. Is there a way to do this?

At the moment I appear to be using around 66MB RSS RAM and 1% CPU... at what point should I be thinking "I need a bigger server"?

To emphasise how a single point of data isn't very useful, I just checked again now and I was using 53MB and 69%. A moment later, with a different version of PHP kicking in, and I was on 106MB and 101%. (Thankfully that stopped; I should rationalise my sites to only use one version of PHP I guess!)
