Can’t believe I didn’t blog this. I have been too busy sorting some things these past couple of months and the coming exams don’t make tasks easier. Anyway, this article is about Conky, a lightweight yet powerful system monitor.
From thr article:
Conky is a lightweight system monitor that provides essential information in an easy-to-understand, highly customizable interface. The software is a fork of TORSMO, which is no longer maintained. Conky monitors your CPU usage, running processes, memory, and swap usage, and other system information, and displays the information as text or as a graph.
P.S. Not really a command line app, just that you make all the changes and provide parameters at the shell
