SYSMON(9.1)                                           SYSMON(9.1)

     NAME
          sysmon, vismon - display system statistics

     SYNOPSIS
          sysmon [ -n ] [ -m ] [ system ... ]

     DESCRIPTION
          Sysmon monitors use of one or more UNIX systems. It displays
          time of day, announcements, and CPU usage statistics.

          CPU usage is reported as a numerical load average (average
          number of runnable processes) and its change in the last
          minute, and a bar graph showing, left-to-right, the propor-
          tion of CPU time spent in: default-priority user processes,
          low priority (nice) processes, system kernel, stream I/O,
          and idle time.

          Arrival of mail or communications via wall(1) or write(1) is
          announced.  Communications appear in a shell (sh(1)) layer
          superimposed on sysmon's layer.  This layer may be used for
          reply.

          The options are:

          -n   Update the bar graph every n seconds.  (n=5 by
               default.)

          -m   Do not monitor CPU usage on other systems.

          Vismon is the same as sysmon, but identifies mail sources by
          picture as well as by name.

     FILES
          /usr/jerq/mbin/sysmon.m  terminal program
          /usr/spool/mail
          /usr/spool/mail/mail.log
          /n/face/*           vismon pictures

     DIAGNOSTICS
          `Can't open comm window' means a shell layer cannot be cre-
          ated.  To receive any further communications, delete some
          layer.

     BUGS
          There's more to system performance than meets the eye.
