X system monitoring program


I was looking for an x system monitor but came up with nothing

does anyone knows where I could find a non-kde/gnome X system monitor ?

also instead of starting an another topic, and in case there is no such thing, what console system monitor would you recommend ?

Something like xosview?

I know what top is, but what's the problem of being not-graphical?? You can open a terminal, run top on it and leave it running all the time.
I don't know of any software like torsmo or gkrellm that do what top does. Even more, I can't imagine top being graphical....how it should be?? a bunch of bars with CPU and RAM usage for each process?? It would be a mess to read.
The closest thing I can think of a frontend to top is gnome-system-monitor. Take a look and hope it will cope your needs.

No, gnome-system-monitor does not need ALL Gnome to run, I have it and I'm on Fluxbox 0.9.11
Take a look to dependencies, there are of course Gnome libraries, but you don't need all things from it. If you're using Fedora Core or Debian, you can install gnome-system-monitor with apt-get, so you'll see the dependencies you need. If you're not running those distros, you should look somewhere else for dependencies, but I'm pretty sure a short google search will show them.

Apart from gnome-system-monitor, i don't know any other frontend to top. There was gtop, but seems to be obsolete by now.
