Monitor and display system statistics

Recommended Posts

Most of us know top, but do you know saidar ?Saidar can be used to monitor and display system statistics including CPU, processes, load, memory,swap, network I/O and disks I/O along with their free space. I have installed this little gem on Fedora Core 6 like below:

$ su$ <password># yum install libstatgrab....# yum install libstatgrab-devel....# yum install libstatgrab-examples....yum install statgrab-tools....#exit

Now to use it just type 'saidar' in the console (as user is OK, no need to be su'd) which still might be open:

$ saidar

You'll see the below in the console :http://www.debianhelp.co.uk/saidar.htmMy own set up looks like this when invoked :statgrabwk5.th.pngYou can stop saidar with CTRL + C. :w00t:

Nice one Striker . . . would be pretty cool to have that running in a transparant terminal . . . B) Also it seems a handy tool that even would run in runlevel 3 ;)B) Bruno
