Under KDE there is a system monitor, which shows CPU activity, RAM usage, & network activity, processes, & applications - although it doesn't look as good as your example. I use FC5 & start the system monitor from the system menu with a root passwd, - you may be able to do something similar in Slackware.

HAve fun.

Do you want graphs like that or just to ssh in and check out how everything is going? If you want the graphs then I use rrdtool and it's great. I use lighttpd and it has a mod_rrdtool which handles just about all of it for me so I'm not entirely sure what involved full setting up of the app but these links look good.

I just typed 'rrdtool tutorial' into Google to get those and there were plenty more so knock yourself out

while we're at it: anybody know a program that gives you a general overview at the end of the day/week/month what programs have caused the most load? It should also show how often this or that application had crashed.

This would also help clearing up space at the end of the month, if it showed what libraries weren't used at all, for example.

All presented on a Silver Platter, please
