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 :Posted ImageYou can stop saidar with CTRL + C. :w00t:
still the same...

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
