xload - system load average display for X
xload [-toolkitoption ...] [-scale integer]
[-update seconds] [-hl color] [-highlight color]
[-jumpscroll pixels] [-label string] [-nolabel] [-lights]
The xload program displays a periodically updating histogram of the system load average.
Xload accepts all of the standard X Toolkit command line options (see X(7)). The order of the options is unimportant. xload also accepts the following additional options:
In addition to the resources available to each of the widgets used by xload there is one resource defined by the application itself.
In order to specify resources, it is useful to know the hierarchy of the widgets which compose xload. In the notation below, indentation indicates hierarchical structure. The widget class name is given first, followed by the widget instance name.
X(7), xrdb(1), mem(4), Athena StripChart Widget.
On older platforms, this program may require the ability to open and read the special system file /dev/kmem. Sites that do not allow general access to this file may need to make xload belong to the same group as /dev/kmem and turn on the set group id permission flag.
Reading the load average is inherently non-portable. Therefore, the routine used to read it (get_load.c) must be ported to each new operating system.
