Projects / wmnetload


wmnetload is a network interface monitor dockapp for Window Maker. It is designed to fit well with dockapps like wmcpuload and wmmemmon. It tracks whether the interface is functioning and displays current network interface throughput, along with an auto-scaling graph of recent network activity (the graph separates upstream and downstream traffic load cleanly without resorting to colors).

            Sorry for the delay in getting back to folks.

            Check the latest 1.3 beta (which I just released); it has this support. If all goes well, the actual release will be out in a week or so.

            rgb color support?
            The other dockapps that look similar (wmcpuload, wmmemload, etc) all have support to change the backlight color to any rgb value. Do you plan to add this feature?

            Re: xpm.h
            Henry Fok has verified the fix; I'm releasing 1.2 to address this issue. Note that there are no new features in 1.2, just build-related bugfixes.

            Re: xpm.h
            Good news -- I believe I've found the source of the problem: bad interaction between autoconf 2.13 and gcc 3.0.

            I've put together a tarball for testing, available from I'd appreciate it if someone could confirm that it fixes the problem.
