Thank you for really useful suggestions! Just to explain - I have found out
that the reason no data was saved in my webdir was that it had a wrong usr.
When I chowned it, it started to load. However, after 30 minutes of running
I see something like:
Maximum: 0.0 % 0.0 % 0.0 %
Loaded: 10.0 % 3.0 % 4.0 %
Is this OK - that is will it with time start to show real CPU usage? I hope
so :) Thank you again!
