ksysguard FAQs??????


hey can someone tell as much about ksysguard as possible please?

launched using the CTRL+ESC combination in KDE, or running
ksysguard from command line of run dialogue

I'm having difficulty finding much relevant Documentation for it
http://docs.kde.org/en/3.1/kdebase/k...workspace.html
is slim pickings

Quote:
Process Controller
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.


Conclusion

Change VmRss to something else (RamUsed?)

What do you mean 'no documentation' or are you saying the documentation that comes with it is not technical enough for you?

'man ps' for process status codes
'man 7 signal' for signal codes

Not very productive response

the documentation is shown in my first post.
Windows in taskmanager had Terminate process

Linux ksysguard has 30 options kill stop quit hup and non of the documentation even mentions any of it


Thanks lasse man 7 signal
is very detailed

I was merely trying to get you to clarify what kind of documentaion you wanted. Maybe I should have signed off with one of these :-)

lol sorry i just reread it and your post wasnt as bad as i read it before

i seemed to get sarcasm and spite from the initial phrase for some reason
which i cant see how i saw now
i must have added some imaginary ! and commas to change the meaning of the sentence.


Sorry

please forgive
