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. SEE ALSO face(9.1), faced(9.5) BUGS There's more to system performance than meets the eye.
