xrestop - monitor server resources used by X11 clients
xrestop --help xrestop [ --display display ] [ --batch ] [ --delay-time seconds ] [ --max-samples count ]
Xrestop uses the X-Resource extension to provide 'top'-like statistics of each connected X11 client's server-side resource usage. It is intended as a developer tool to aid more efficient server resource usage and debug server-side resource leakage.
--help Show usage. --display, -d <display> Specify X11 display to monitor. --delay-time, -t <seconds> Time in seconds between taking samples. Default is 2 seconds. --batch, -b Run in batch mode. Slightly more detailed infomation is streamed to stdout rather than the usual curses interface. This mode is intended for debugging a single client with something like xrestop -b | grep -A 14 appname --max-samples, -m <count> Specify number of times to gather and display results. Default is continuous, which can be set with 0 (zero).
X(7), top(1).
The X-Resource extension is very new and may not be 100% accurate.
