       asmon - A system resource monitor dockapp for Afterstep and WindowMaker


       asmon [options]


       Asmon is a dockable applet for X11 that monitors system  resources.  It
       is designed for the WindowMaker Dock or Afterstep Wharf but should work
       with others as well.  It  displays  CPU  usage,  load  average,  memory
       utilization, pages and swaps.

       The  upper  most  section of the applet displays CPU usage on the left,
       while numerically representing load average on the right.

       The middle bar shows memory utilization divided by ticks  into  shared,
       buffers,  and  cached  respectively,  with the number of megabytes used
       represented numerically to the right.

       The lower bar displays information about swap, graphically on the left,
       numerically on the right.

       At  bottom  left  are four LEDs, top to bottom, left to right they are:
       pages in, pages out, swap in and swap out. The remainder of the  bottom
       row  is  dedicated to a graphical bar representing the amount of memory
       that the X server is using with the  numerical  representation  to  the
       right, (optionally this section can be used to display uptime).


       -display <display>
               Specify an alternate X display; see X(1).

       -e <command>
               Execute <command> on mouseclick.

       -u      Display uptime rather then X memory usage.

       -v      Show version information and exit.

       -h      Show summary of options.
