wmcpuload(1) A dockapp to display CPU usage


wmcpuload [options]


This manual page documents briefly the wmcpuload command. This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution.

WMCPULoad is a dockapp that is supported by X window managers such as Window Maker, AfterStep, BlackBox, and Enlightenment. It displays the current CPU usage, expressed as a percentile and a chart, and has an LCD look-alike user interface. The back-light may be turned on/off by clicking the mouse button over the application. If the CPU usage hits a certain threshold, an alarm-mode will alert you by turning on back-light.


This program follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-'). A summary of options is included below.
