Want stuff like CPU Monitors and RAM Monitors and ****...
38 Best Free Resource Meter Updated November 18 2005
This is cute. TinyResMeter is an itsy-bitsy system monitor. Unlike many other monitors, it doesn't consume a lot of CPU utilization in order to tell you your CPU utilization. In addition to CPU usage, you can optionally monitor cache, RAM, page file and swap file usage, running processes and threads, disk space utilization and a number of other parameters as well. Also built-in, is a screen grabber that saves the current screen to disk when you press PrintScreen. How the author fits all this into 92KB beats me. A new version is on the way offering even more functionality. If you are like something a little fancier than TinyResMeter then check out StatBar. It's got more features than you could ever want though but at the cost of a higher resource overhead needed to run the program. Nice product though and easy to try out as the program doesn't require installation.
^^ Those are for Windows.
DJ, take a look at gDesklets (for Gnome) and SuperKaramba (for KDE):
you really should advise your distro on such a post.... maybe think about updating that sig with uptime spamming linkage to tell us? .... if you are running something like Ubuntu you may be surprised to see what is already listed under the package management - I know I was.... it is always an easier option for installs and the like unless you are sort of into a highly modded Linux setup (I have a hunch this could be you!)
It is Fedora Core 4 x86_64... I run Fluxbox, but most gnome and kde apps work. I haven't been able to find a dual cpu monitor yet...
