Thread: Best Desktop system monitor??

  1. #1

    Thumbs up Best Desktop system monitor??

    I'm looking for something to sit on my desktop and show at least: dual cpus, uptime, ram used and free, kernel being used , in and out KB/s. Big enough to read font or settable. I've tried the ones available for SuperKaramba but looking for something different. I'd like it to sit down the right side of my screen. Have a 21" monitor so I'll shift my running programs to the left and be happy.

    Your opinions count so post 'em!

    you could look at conky but gKrellm rocks!
    also if you're into tray applets - kima & system monitor & kbandwidth will
    meet everything except kernel used I believe plus they're always visible

    If you don't need fancy pictures then I'd go for conky. Lean and very
    configurable.
