Now the question is, is there a similar app that DOES graph CPU usage, and can be used in JWM?

There is gatotray, a proper trayapp http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=493173#493173
Or there is what Hairywill described above, which I seemed to miss at the time.

a monitor for running processes is actually a lot more useful as a diagnostic tool than a CPU meter.


Exactly so. Cool
Sometimes the meter is maxed out, a solid block . . .
This means both of my dual cores are occupied.
I should know why . . . I might be watching a video and doing some other task simultaneously . . .

Yesterday the meter was as streaky as bacon
(white lines)
Which indicated that several threads were running
Why? Been doing some pretend programming . . .
[I like to pretend I can program] Rolling Eyes
By running Htop (Menu / System / System Status and Config in Puppy 5.3 or command line 'top') I could work out what they were . . . Idea
'Restart X' cleared these still running threads . . . Smile

Lobster - I presume you are talking about a CPU usage meter in your first paragraph, and xload in your second paragraph...

WOW, i have never checked this thread out, WOW. Wasn't expecting it to be so long. I always setup conky, Didn't know what that thing in the tray was. Smile

same here, but I know how to fix it... /proc has a file that does show the 1,5 and 15 minute load average (I'm in my Droid, so can't check). Just use it to generate the image (there is an equivalent c function too) I wrote a script that will generate an xpm image with text and a percent bar which could be used by pnmmon or other generalized tray apps.

Yes, we discussed some solutions like that earlier in the thread, and also a ready-made tray-app (gatotray). But that isn't "fixing" anything Smile. Xload is very useful as it is, and the point in this thread is so that people understand it.

Agreed.

A tooltip should be easy to implement?
Recently in using Openshot (still flakey in 1.4 but improving) the white threads grow in number telling me when it is likely to break and need a reboot. Just using restart of x I still found remaining threads running.
Invaluable. Cool
