The Process Controller gives you a list of processes on your system. The list can be sorted by each column. Just press the left mouse button at the head of the column.
The list shows the following information about each process. Please note that not all properties are available on every operating system.
Name The name of the executable that started the process.
PID The Process ID. A unique number for each process.
PPID The Process ID of the process parent.
UID The ID of the user that started the process.
GID The ID of the group the process belongs to.
Status The process status.
User% The processor load of the process in user space (in percent).
System% The processor load of the process in system space (in percent).
Nice The scheduling priority.
VmSize The total amount of virtual memory used by the process (in kBytes).
VmRss The total amount of physical memory used by the process (in kBytes).
Login The login name of the user that started the process.
Command The complete start command of the process.
What do the different statuses mean? Sleeping, Disk Sleep, Running (i know one
What do all the SIG's mean? sigterm SIGkill etc there 20 or so of them
Whats the difference between User%, System%??
Nice is a priority scheme though
-ve number = mean system hog
+ve number = nice and polite and waits it turn to use CPU.
i wish the KDE team would change the terminolgy of VmRss that doesnt even resemble RAM too complicated to know without documentation.
VmSize fair enough swap usage.
Change VmRss to something else (RamUsed?)
