Thread: two kde questions

  1. #1

    Default two kde questions

    Dear all,
    I would like to ask your help.
    Do you know what is the command line for kde's System monitor?
    I do
    ssh myserver -X
    and I would like to be able to launch it and see what is going on in that machine.

    Moreover, do you know how I can turn off my kde from command line? Just in case the kde gui fails to shut down kde.

    I would like to thank you for your replies
    Regards
    Alex

    ssh -X <user>@<ip_address>

    You can find the launch command in the menu editor > find the system monitor > check it's command

    Probably:
    Code:
    systemmonitor
    Shutdown is done as su -

    Code:
    shutdown -h  now

    'ksysguard'

    'htop' is also rather nice. You'll have to install it though. And since it is a cli programm it is quite fast and does not depend on X. And with Mouse on Text Console you can even point and click.

    "ksysguard &" (w/o quotation marks, of course)

    i don't know if there's a command to turn of KDE in particular, but "init
    3" after becoming root ("su -") should do the trick.

    I was talking about kde's shutdown. Sometimes my gui fails to turn kde off. Is it possible to do this with some cli command?

    Moreover do you know if I can somehow change in kde window's titles? For example write now I run to kdesysguard one for my local pc and one for remote pc. It would be great if I could put my title in these windows.

    i thought he wanted to shut down KDE, not the whole machine.

    'ksysguard --title <title>'

    But even without the --title option, the ksysguard that you lauch over SSH from another machine will also have that machine's name in the title anyway, distinguishine it from instances for your local machine. I.e. it'll say "System Monitor <@linux-xxxx>".

    ETA: See 'ksysguard --help-qt' for more options.



    As for that other question, you could terminate/kill the right processes. 'top' or 'htop' on the cli should always be helpful with that. But strictly speaking that is not a proper logout.

    Thank you very much all of you for your contributions.
    1) For kde again. I would like to ask from console the kde to shutdown 'nice' . I can also kill X/ write init3/ init 0/ shutdown. I all these ways kde will not save my last settings which I want to keep

    2) I have a system with 64 processors and I would like to have any graphical represantation that will give me the cpu utilization for every single cpu. I am writing some matlab code and looking my cpu's status it makes it easier to help me understand if my code is running in parallel or not.
    ksysguard seems that it can not support nicely so many cpus. I can upload a picture of it if you would like to.

    I would like to thank you in advadnce for your help

    i have no idea if there are specialized applications for this type of CPU
    monitoring--wouldn't surprise me. on the other hand, top and htop can be
    customized quite a bit as to how they display the information--separate
    CPUs or combined, per example. perhaps getting into their man entries
    would help?
