wmfire - Fiery dock app monitor


wmfire [-c CPU] [-f COLOUR] [-F FILE] [-g GEOMETRY] [-h] [-H MAX] [-i INTERFACE] [-l] [-L
MIN] [-m] [-n] [-p] [-s SPEED] [-x] [-y]


wmfire is flaming dock app which can monitor your cpu, memory, network or a file.

o Left click to change the status monitor (unless locked)
o Middle click to hide/show nice'd process on cpu load
o Right click to change flame colour (unless locked)
o Mouse wheel up or down is the same as left click

On mouse over the cursor will disappear and be replaced by a burning spot at that
location. After two seconds symbols will be burnt to represent what is being monitored.
For cpu, a short solid bar represents average load or a line of dots representing the
current cpu number on SMP systems. For the memory, a grid of dots is used to signify a
memory array. For the network, a line of marching dots is like data passing through a
cable. For file values, a spinning disk platter is shown.

(Not all window managers support all mouse over effects.)

The file monitoring will only read the first value in a file. For complex parsing use an
external program to read the required value and write it to the same file wmfire is set to
