whowatch - console, interactive, process and users monitoring tool.

DESCRIPTION


Whowatch is an console, interactive users and process monitoring tool. It displays
information about the users currently logged on to the machine, in real-time. Besides
standard information (login name, tty, host, user's process), the type of the connection
(ie. telnet or ssh) is shown. Display of users command line can be switch to tty idle
time. Certain user can be selected and his processes tree may be viewed as well as tree
of all system processes. Tree may be displayed with additional column that shows owner of
each process. In the process tree mode SIGINT and SIGKILL signals can be sent to the
selected process. Killing processes is just as simple and fun as deleting lines on the
screen.

Whowatch has no command line options or configuration file. All actions are performed in
real time by pressing following keys:

Users list mode:

'up' 'down'
cursor movement

'i' toggle between user command line and idle time

'c' full command line on/off. Disabling full command line can save CPU time. It can
give you also some additional information about process executable.

'enter'
view selected user's processes tree.

't' all system processes (init tree)

Tree mode:

'up' 'down'
cursor movement

'enter'
go back to users list

'o' show processes owners

'c' full command line on/off. Disabling full command line can save CPU time. It can
give you also some additional information about process executable.

'Ctrl-I'
send INT signal to selected process

'Ctrl-K'
send KILL signal to selected process

PLUGINS


Whowatch has ability to load plugin during program run. Plugin prints information inside
details window. Plugins gives flexibility: if some specific information about process,
user or system is needed then separate program could be written to obtain such
information. Since there are three kinds of deatils window (process, user and system)
maximum three plugins can be loaded. Whowatch has very simple API to write plugins.
