XOSVIEW(1.8.0)									   XOSVIEW(1.8.0)

NAME
       xosview - X based system monitor

SYNOPSIS
       xosview [options]

DESCRIPTION
       xosview	is a monitor which displays the status of several system based parameters.  These
       include CPU usage, load average, memory usage, swap space  usage,  network  usage,  inter-
       rupts,  and  serial  port status.  Each of these is displayed as a horizontal bar which is
       separated into color coded regions.  Each region represents a percentage of  the  resource
       which  is  being  put  to  a  particular  use.	Typing a 'q' in the window will terminate
       xosview.

       At the moment xosview runs on seven  platforms  (Linux,	NetBSD,  FreeBSD,  OpenBSD,  some
       Solaris	systems, IRIX 6.5 and HPUX).  Not all of the meters described below are supported
       on all platforms.  Some of the meters may appear different  depending  upon  the  platform
       xosview	is  running  on.   Note that *BSD is used as an abbreviation for all three of the
       free BSD operating systems (NetBSD, FreeBSD, OpenBSD).

OPTIONS
       Most of these command line options are just a  convenient  way  to  set	one  or  more  of
       xosview's  resources.   Please  see  the  RESOURCES  section  for more details on what the
       resource is for.

       -v
	      Displays the version number.

       -name name
	      Sets the Resource name xosview will use (same as the -name  option  for  typical	X
	      applications  like  xterm).   When  performing  resource lookups, xosview will look
	      under name, and then under ``xosview''.  For an example, perform the following  (as
	      documented in README.netbsd):
		       xrdb -merge Xdefaults.stipple
		       xosview -name xosvstipple &
		       xosview -name xosvstipplebw &

	      to  display  a  meter  that  will  shows network usage, with a maximum bandwidth of
	      maxbandwidth.  Notice that setting the bandwidth to 0 no longer disables the  meter
	      -- use the ``-net'' option instead.

       -page
	      This  option  overrides  the  xosview*page  resource.   It is equivalent to setting

	      example  of  how	the  xosview*memFreeColor could be set using this option is shown
	      below (Note the use of " to prevent the shell from expanding '*' or  from  creating
	      two separate arguments, 'xosview*memfreeColor:' and 'purple'):
		     -xrm "xosview*memFreeColor: purple"

X RESOURCES
       The  following  is  a  list of X resources supported by xosview.  Each has a default value
       assigned to it.	These values can be found in the file Xdefaults which can be obtained  in
       the  source  distribution  of  xosview.	 They  can  be	overridden  in	the  usual places
       (/usr/lib/X11/app-defaults/XOsview, $HOME/.Xdefaults, etc.).

       It should be noted that it is OK to have a resource defined for a  port	of  xosview  that
       does  not  support  the	feature  the resource configures.  Xosview will simply ignore the
       resources that are set for it but not supported on a given platform.

       General Resources

       xosview*title: name
	      The string that xosview will use for the X window title.	Normally xosview will use
	      'xosview@machine_name' for a title.  This resource overrides the default behavior.

       xosview*geometry: geometry_string
	      This  is	a  standard X geometry string that defines the size and location of the X
	      window used by xosview.

       xosview*display: name
	      The name of the display where xosview will contact the X	server	for  drawing  its
	      window.

       xosview*pixmapName: name
	      The filename of an X pixmap (xpm) file for use as a background image.

       xosview*captions: (True or False)
	      If True then xosview will display meter captions.

       xosview*labels: (True or False)
	      If True then xosview will display meter labels.

       xosview*meterLabelColor: color
	      The color to use for the meter labels.

       xosview*usedlabels: (True or False)
	      If  True	then xosview will display labels that show the percentage of the resource
	      (or absolute amount, depending on the meter) being used.	This option requires that
	      the labels option also be set to True.

       xosview*usedLabelColor: color
	      The color to use for "used" labels.

       xosview*borderwidth:  width
	      The width of the border for the xosview window.

       xosview*font: font
	      This is the font that xosview will use.

       xosview*background: color
	      This is the color that will be used for the background.

       xosview*foreground: color
	      This is the color that will be used for the foreground.

       xosview*enableStipple:	(True or False)
	      Change  to  true	to  try  stipple support.  This is primarily for users stuck with
	      1-bit monitors/display cards.  Try setting  enableStipple  true.	 Please  give  us
	      feedback	on this, if you use it.  It needs some more work, but no one has given us
	      any feedback so far.

       xosview*graphNumCols: number
	      This defines the number of sample bars drawn when a meter  is  in  scrolling  graph
	      mode.  This  also  has  the side-effect of defining the width of the graph columns.
	      This is only used by meters which have graph mode enabled.

       Load Meter Resources

       xosview*load: (True or False)
	      If True then xosview will display a load meter.

       xosview*loadWarnColor: color
	      This is the color that the load meter will use once the  load  average  is  greater
	      than 1.

       xosview*loadProcColor: color
	      This  is the color that the load meter will use to display the load average when it
	      is less than or equal to 1.

       xosview*loadIdleColor: color
	      The load meter will use this color to display the idle field.

       xosview*loadPriority: priority
	      This number (which must be an integer >= 1) sets the number of tenths of	a  second
	      that  the  load  meter  waits between updates.  A value of 1 has xosview update the
	      meter 10 times per second (the fastest).	A value of 600	would  cause  xosview  to
	      update the meter once a minute.

       xosview*loadAlarmThreshold: int
	      This  number  (which must be an integer >= 1) sets the value at which the loadmeter
	      changes its status and color from "normal" to "alarm".  The default value is 2.

       xosview*loadDecay: (True or False)
	      You should probably leave this at the default value (False).  The load is already a
	      time-averaged value!

       xosview*loadGraph: (True or False)
	      If  this	is  set  to  True  then  the  load  meter will be drawn as a horizontally
	      scrolling bargraph showing the state value verses time.

       xosview*loadUsedFormat:	  (float, percent or autoscale)
	      This resource tells xosview how to display "used" labels.  The formats work as fol-
	      lows:

	      float:
		     Display the value as a floating point number.
	      percent:
		     Display the value as a percentage of the total.
	      autoscale:
		     Display the absolute value and automatically print the units (K, M, or G) as
		     appropriate.

       CPU Meter Resources

       xosview*cpu: (True or False)
	      If True then xosview will display a cpu meter.  On linux	SMP  machines  this  will
	      cause  a	seperate  meter to be displayed for each cpu if Jerome Forissier's kernel
	      patch has been applied.  See the 'README.linux' file for more details. On IRIX 6.5,
	      the resource cpuFormat decides which meters are created for multiple CPUs.

       xosview*cpuUserColor: color
	      The cpu meter will use this color to display the cpu user time field.
       xosview*cpuNiceColor: color
	      The cpu meter will use this color to display the cpu nice time field.
       xosview*cpuSystemColor: color
	      The cpu meter will use this color to display the cpu system time field.
       xosview*cpuInterruptColor: color
	      The cpu meter will use this color to display the cpu interrupt time field.
       xosview*cpuFreeColor: color
	      The cpu meter will use this color to display the cpu idle time field.

       xosview*cpuPriority: priority
	      This  number  (which must be an integer >= 1) sets the number of tenths of a second
	      that the cpu meter waits between updates.  A value of  1	has  xosview  update  the
	      meter  10  times	per  second (the fastest).  A value of 600 would cause xosview to
	      update the meter once a minute.
       xosview*cpuDecay: (True or False)
	      If True then the cpu meter will be split vertically in two.  The top half will show
	      the  instantaneous  state, while the bottom half will display a decaying average of
	      the state.
       xosview*cpuGraph: (True or False)
	      If this is set to True then the cpu meter will be drawn as a horizontally scrolling
	      bargraph showing the state value verses time.
       xosview*cpuUsedFormat:	  (float, percent or autoscale)
	      This resource tells xosview how to display "used" labels.  The formats work as fol-
	      lows:

	      float:
		     Display the value as a floating point number.
	      percent:
		     Display the value as a percentage of the total.
	      autoscale:
		     Display the absolute value and automatically print the units (K, M, or G) as
		     appropriate.

       xosview*cpuFormat: (single, all, both or auto)
	      IRIX only.
	      If  single, only a cumulative meter for all CPU is created. All creates a meter for
	      each CPU, but no cumulative meter. Both creates one cumulative meter  and  one  per
	      cpu. auto behaves like single on uniprocessor system, and like both on multiproces-
	      sor systems.

       Memory Meter Resources

       xosview*mem: (True or False)
	      If True then xosview will display a mem meter.

       xosview*memUsedColor: color
	      The mem meter will use this color to display the used memory field.
       xosview*memSharedColor: color
	      The mem meter will use this color to display the shared memory field.
       xosview*memBufferColor: color
	      The mem meter will use this color to display the buffer memory field.
       xosview*memCacheColor: color
	      The mem meter will use this color to display the cache memory field.
       xosview*memFreeColor: color
	      The mem meter will use this color to display the free memory field.

	      The mem meter will use this color to display the shared memory field.
       xosview*memTextColor: color
	      The mem meter will use this color to display the HP text memory field.
       xosview*memOtherColor: color
	      The mem meter will use this color to display the HP ``other'' memory field.
       xosview*memActiveColor: color
	      The mem meter will use this color to display the NetBSD active memory field.
       xosview*memInactiveColor: color
	      The mem meter will use this color to display the NetBSD inactive memory field.

       xosview*memPriority: priority
	      This number (which must be an integer >= 1) sets the number of tenths of	a  second
	      that  the  mem  meter  waits  between updates.  A value of 1 has xosview update the
	      meter 10 times per second (the fastest).	A value of 600	would  cause  xosview  to
	      update the meter once a minute.
       xosview*memDecay: (True or False)
	      If True then the mem meter will be split vertically in two.  The top half will show
	      the instantaneous state, while the bottom half will display a decaying  average  of
	      the state.
       xosview*memGraph: (True or False)
	      If this is set to True then the mem meter will be drawn as a horizontally scrolling
	      bargraph showing the state value verses time.
       xosview*memUsedFormat:	  (float, percent or autoscale)
	      This resource tells xosview how to display "used" labels.  The formats work as fol-
	      lows:

	      float:
		     Display the value as a floating point number.
	      percent:
		     Display the value as a percentage of the total.
	      autoscale:

		     appropriate.

       Swap Meter Resources

       xosview*swap: (True or False)
	      If True then xosview will display a swap meter.

       xosview*swapFreeColor: color
	      The swap meter will use this color to display the free swap field.

       xosview*swapPriority: priority
	      This number (which must be an integer >= 1) sets the number of tenths of	a  second
	      that  the  swap  meter  waits between updates.  A value of 1 has xosview update the
	      meter 10 times per second (the fastest).	A value of 600	would  cause  xosview  to
	      update the meter once a minute.
       xosview*swapDecay: (True or False)
	      If  True	then  the  swap meter will be split vertically in two.	The top half will
	      show the instantaneous state, while the bottom half will display a decaying average
	      of the state.
       xosview*swapGraph: (True or False)
	      If  this	is  set  to  True  then  the  swap  meter will be drawn as a horizontally
	      scrolling bargraph showing the state value verses time.
       xosview*swapUsedFormat:	  (float, percent or autoscale)
	      This resource tells xosview how to display "used" labels.  The formats work as fol-
	      lows:

		     Display the value as a floating point number.
	      percent:
		     Display the value as a percentage of the total.
	      autoscale:
		     Display the absolute value and automatically print the units (K, M, or G) as

       Page Swapping Meter Resources

       xosview*page: (True or False)
	      If True then xosview will display a page meter.

       xosview*pageBandWidth: maxEvents
	      This number is used to specify the expected maximum bandwidth (in events / sec) for
	      the  page  meter.  When the expected maximum bandwidth (maxEvents) is exceeded then
	      the page meter will display the relative percentage of page swapping (25%  in,  75%
	      out).

       xosview*pageInColor: color
	      The page meter will use this color to display the page-in field.
       xosview*pageOutColor: color
	      The page meter will use this color to display the page-out field.
       xosview*pageIdleColor: color
	      The page meter will use this color to display the idle field.

       xosview*pagePriority: priority
	      This  number  (which must be an integer >= 1) sets the number of tenths of a second
	      that the page meter waits between updates.  A value of 1	has  xosview  update  the
	      meter  10  times	per  second (the fastest).  A value of 600 would cause xosview to
	      update the meter once a minute.
       xosview*pageDecay: (True or False)
	      If True then the page meter will be split vertically in two.   The  top  half  will
	      show the instantaneous state, while the bottom half will display a decaying average
	      of the state.
       xosview*pageGraph: (True or False)
	      If this is set to True then  the	page  meter  will  be  drawn  as  a  horizontally
	      scrolling bargraph showing the state value verses time.
       xosview*pageUsedFormat:	  (float, percent or autoscale)
	      This resource tells xosview how to display "used" labels.  The formats work as fol-
	      lows:

	      float:
		     Display the value as a floating point number.
	      percent:
		     Display the value as a percentage of the total.
	      autoscale:
		     Display the absolute value and automatically print the units (K, M, or G) as
		     appropriate.

       Gfx Meter Resources

       xosview*gfx:   (True or False)
	      If  True	xosview  will display the GfxMeter. The value is sampled once per second,
	      due to the usage of sadc to sample data.

       xosview*gfxWarnColor: color
	      This is the color that the gfx meter will use once the warn state is reached.

       xosview*gfxAlarmColor: color
	      This is the color that the gfx meter will use once the alarm state is reached.

       xosview*gfxSwapColor: color
	      This is the color that the gfx meter will use in normal state

       xosview*gfxIdleColor: color
	      The gfx meter will use this color to display the idle field.

       xosview*gfxPriority: priority
	      This number (which must be an integer >= 1) sets the number of tenths of	a  second
	      that  the  gfx  meter  waits  between updates.  A value of 1 has xosview update the
	      meter 10 times per second (the fastest).	A value of 600	would  cause  xosview  to
	      update the meter once a minute.

       xosview*gfxWarnThreshold: int
	      This  number  (which must be an integer >= 1) of swapbuffers per second and pipe at
	      which the gfxmeter changes its status  and  color  from  "normal"  to  "warn".  The
	      default value is 60.

       xosview*gfxAlarmThreshold: int
	      This  number (which must be an integer >= gfxWarnThreshold) of swapbuffers per sec-
	      ond and pipe at which the gfxmeter changes its status  and  color  from  "warn"  to
	      "alarm". The default value is 120.

       xosview*gfxDecay: (True or False)
	      You should probably leave this at the default value (False).  The gfx does not work
	      in decay mode.

       xosview*gfxGraph: (True or False)
	      If this is set to True then the gfx meter will be drawn as a horizontally scrolling
	      bargraph showing the state value verses time.

       xosview*gfxUsedFormat:	  (float, percent or autoscale)
	      This resource tells xosview how to display "used" labels.  The formats work as fol-
	      lows:

	      float:
		     Display the value as a floating point number.
	      percent:
		     Display the value as a percentage of the total.
	      autoscale:
		     Display the absolute value and automatically print the units (K, M, or G) as
		     appropriate.

       Network Meter Resources

       xosview*net:   (True or False)
	      If  True	xosview  will  display	the NetMeter.  Linux users will have to configure
	      their kernels and setup some ip accounting rules to make this work.  See	the  file
	      README.linux which comes with the xosview distribution for details.

       xosview*netBandwidth: maxBytes
	      This  number is used to specify the expected maximum bandwidth (in bytes / sec) for
	      the meter.  When the expected maximum bandwidth (maxBytes)  is  exceeded	then  the
	      network meter will display the relative percentage of network usage (25% incomming,
	      75% outgoing).

       xosview*netInColor: color
	      The net meter will use this color to display the incoming field.
       xosview*netOutColor: color
	      The net meter will use this color to display the outgoing field.

       xosview*netBackground: color
	      This is the color that the network meter will use for the "idle" field.

       xosview*netPriority: priority
	      This number (which must be an integer >= 1) sets the number of tenths of	a  second
	      that  the  net  meter  waits  between updates.  A value of 1 has xosview update the
	      meter 10 times per second (the fastest).	A value of 600	would  cause  xosview  to
	      update the meter once a minute.
       xosview*netDecay: (True or False)
	      If True then the net meter will be split vertically in two.  The top half will show
	      the instantaneous state, while the bottom half will display a decaying  average  of
	      the state.
       xosview*netGraph: (True or False)
	      If this is set to True then the net meter will be drawn as a horizontally scrolling
	      bargraph showing the state value verses time.
       xosview*netUsedFormat:	  (float, percent or autoscale)
	      This resource tells xosview how to display "used" labels.  The formats work as fol-
	      lows:

	      float:
		     Display the value as a floating point number.
	      percent:
		     Display the value as a percentage of the total.
	      autoscale:
		     Display the absolute value and automatically print the units (K, M, or G) as
		     appropriate.

       Serial Meter Resources

       xosview*serial(0-9): (True, False, or portBase)
	      If True then xosview will display a serial meter for ttySx.  The portbase  will  be
	      autodetected.   Because  autodetection can fail, (if the port is locked by ppp/slip
	      for example) you can specify the portbase instead of "True".  If a portBase is used
	      then xosview will use it instead of trying to autodetect.

	      For  this to work on Linux xosview needs to be suid root in order to have access to
	      the ports.  See the file README.linux which comes with the xosview distribution for
	      more details.

       xosview*serialOnColor: color
	      This is the color the serial meter will use for bits that are set.

       xosview*serialOffColor: color
	      This is the color the serial meter will use for bits that are not set.

       xosview*serialPriority: priority
	      This  number  (which must be an integer >= 1) sets the number of tenths of a second
	      that the serial meter waits between updates.  A value of 1 has xosview  update  the
	      meter  10  times	per  second (the fastest).  A value of 600 would cause xosview to
	      update the meter once a minute.

       Interrupt Meter Resources

       xosview*interrupts: (True or False)
	      If True then xosview will display an interrupt meter.

	      This is the color that will be used to show "inactive" interrupts.

       xosview*intPriority: priority
	      This number (which must be an integer >= 1) sets the number of tenths of	a  second
	      that  the  int  meter  waits  between updates.  A value of 1 has xosview update the
	      meter 10 times per second (the fastest).	A value of 600	would  cause  xosview  to
	      update the meter once a minute.

       Lm Sensors Temperature Resources

       xosview*lmstemp: (True or False)
	      If True then xosview will display a lmstemp meter.

	      Highest temp value displayed, default 100.

       xosview*lmstempActColor:  color
	      Color of actual temperature.

       xosview*lmstempHighColor:  color
	      Color above alarm temperature, also used to indicate alarm.

       xosview*lmstempIdleColor:   color
	      Color between actual and alarm temperatures.

       xosview*lmstempN:   filename
	      Name of temperature file from /proc/sys/dev/sensors/*/*, N=1..
	      Note  if	more  files with same name exists, only the first is found. There is cur-
	      rently no possiblity to configure equal named  files  on	different  busses  (which
	      would be rarely necessary, I hope).
	      eg.
	      xosview*lmstemp1:   temp xosview*lmstemp2:   remote_temp

       xosview*lmstempLabelN:	Labelstring

	      field.
       xosview*diskIdleColor: color
	      The disk meter will use this color to display the idle field.

       xosview*diskBandwidth: bandwidth
	      This number is used to specify the expected maximum bandwidth in bytes  per  second
