Very easily the best system monitoring app that exists for Gnome
. In addition to what is mentioned above, it can also monitor SETI@home
status and Distributed.net
status. Along with those, it also displays the time and date, and even the local weather
(using information from the National Weather Service
). To appease you even more, it has controls for mounting/unmounting disks, XMMS
, volume, and infinitely more things thanks to its plugin capabilities.
All of this is displayed in a vertical bar that uses screen space rather efficiently. This is appreciated for those of us who have enough trouble with a 640X480 monitor.
