    Does nmon have to be run with root privileges? Or can it be run with any other user permission?

    Sorry that I was not clear enough in my previous post.

    My concern is that if I run it as regular user (not root), would it still be able to collect all the data, or some root permissions are required to get some specific info e.g. network, I/O read/write etc.
