wmmemload [options]


This manual page documents briefly the wmmemload command.

WMMemLoad is a program to monitor memory/swap usages. It is a dockapp that is supported by X window managers such as Window Maker, AfterStep, BlackBox, and Enlightenment.

The current memory usage is displayed in the top half. The swap usage is in the bottom half. It has an LCD look-alike user interface. The back-light may be turned on/off by clicking the mouse button over the appliacation. If the usage hits a certain threshold, an alarm-mode will alert you by turning on back-light.
