Performance monitoring tools for Ubuntu
You can obviously achieve better system performance if you are monitoring your system properly. Every operating system has the tools and techniques to monitor the system performance, so does Ubuntu Linux. You can monitor your Ubuntu system in one of the following ways.
Method 1 : Use System Monitor
System Monitor is a default installed utility to monitor the system. It can be loaded from Applications > System Tools > System Monitor.
Update: What we showed below is the System Monitor for KDE. As the commenter(Vadium) rightly points out the System Monitor of default Genome environment can be accessed by going to System > Administration.
It has a very eye-candy graphical interface with two main tabs, Process Table and System Load.
Process Table shows the CPU, memory, and network performance in the form of graphs. Have a look at the following screen shot.
Method 2: Use Saidar
You can use the saidar tool to monitor your system. It is a tool which shows system performance in terminal. So to use saidar, you must be familiar with terminal. To install it, simply run following command in terminal.
sudo apt-get install saidar
It will install in no time. Once installation is complete, open your terminal and run following command.

One thing first: You stated: "... or have multiple AV programs in order to catch all possible problems."
It is actually never a good idea to have more than one Anti-Virus program actively running at one time; their actions can conflict with each other, causing crashes, hangs, and other problems. Note that this is NOT true of Anti-Spyware programs (also called "Anti-Malware" programs)- having more than one antispyware program monitoring your system is a Good Thing.
Remember that your McAfee Security Suite contains not only an anti-virus program, but also an antispyware program, a firewall, and a few other security/privacy-protection tools
