Projects / gPS


gPS (graphical Process Statistics) is a system information applet based on GTK+. It displays the processes of one or more computers (like ps or top), allows killing, renicing, and signal sending, shows lots of details on selected processes, shows CPU/Memory usage and history graphs, and is capable of watching networked computers in addition to the local one. It also provides an easy way to send signals to processes based on their owners (uid), groups (gid), and string matching.

            Re: Appearance
            The project is still maintained, but it's not my primary focus anymore (which has become eboard), so I'm less likely to
            add new features. Sorry for not replying to your message, it's still in my gps mail folder but I must have been busy at the time and the message ended up forgotten there :-(

            Yes, I still accept contributions, code contributions are preferred. Also, I'm no longer maintaining the FreeBSD-specific code,
            and am interested in handling it to someone else.

            The overall layout is not very intuitive, many
            of the menu items are in obtuse locations and
            it isn't as easy to use as it could be.

            Still, overall I feel its one of the better
            process viewers.

            However I am not sure if its maintained, I
            never got a response from the author for some

            `Aesthetical' isn't a word.
            Try `Aesthetic'.

            Neat app - thanks!
