wmforkplop - Monitors forking activity and displays top CPU consuming
wmforkplop is a program that monitors the forking activity of the
kernel and displays a list of the most CPU-consuming processes.
Although primarily aimed at Windowmaker, it will run on any window
manager, either as a dockapp or as a standard X11 application.
--fontpath path add a new directory to the font search directory list
default: --fontpath=/usr/share/fonts/truetype (and
--font fontname/size Set the 'small font' name/size in pixel (default:
--smallfont=Vera/6 The font name are case-sensitive, and must
correspound to the name of a .ttf file which can be found in one
of the fontpaths By default, wmforkplop tries to load the
* Vera/6, DejaVuSansMono/6, Andale_Mono/6, Verdana/6,
-c n, --colormap=n
select colormap number n (0 <= n <= 5)
start in window (i.e. undocked) mode with specified geometry
(i.e -g 96x32 or -g 64x64+0+0)
--32, --48, --56
start in a reduced dockapp, for people whose dock is too small
too contain 64x64 dockapps
disable the wmtop feature, you will only see the fork animation.
disable the fork animation, you will only see the list of top
minimum CPU consumption (%) of a process listed in the top-list
-u n, --proc-update-delay=n
set the delay between two reads of /proc, the default is 150
(milliseconds). Setting a small value gives accurate results,
but consumes more CPU as reading /proc is quite expensive.
See /usr/share/doc/wmforkplop/README.gz for more details.
