    Default gnome-system-monitor VERY slow to startup


    hello people

    i have a system monitor applet in one of my panels to monitor CPU load.

    When you click this applet, it opens up gnome-system-monitor. I've had
    this since 10.2.

    But after i upgraded to 11.1, when i click the applet, it takes about 1
    minute to openup gnome-system-monitor! i'm not joking, you even forget
    you clicked there when it finally opens.

    I've seen this happen on 2 new installs (not upgrade, but new
    installation), but on both of these i upgraded my desktop definitions
    from GNOME included in 10.3. Everything else is working fine.

    Does anyone have the same bug or is it just me? Any clues on how to
    solve it?

    thanks in advance

    I guess it's a common problem caused by that new Hardware page in
    gnome-system-monitor. The bad thing is that there is no way to disable
    it (or I didn't found it) so it may be inspecting the hardware every
    time it starts. I have no idea why there is need to have such
    information in resource monitor if I can't even do anything with it.
    It's just a tree-list of hardware no more.

    Guess it should be moved to any other app or removed at all, it's
    useless and annoying. Also, I recommend htop for resource checking, it's
    lightweight and console while g-s-m usually consumes processor time more
    than any other process, even X, lol.

    Oh, it really starts fast when launched from terminal. Then I'm wrong
    about hardware tab, thanks.
