DESCRIPTION

The System Monitor application displays a list of system processes, and monitors system usage. System Monitor shows which processes are running and how the processes are related.

System Monitor also provides detailed information about individual processes, and enables the user to control which processes are running. System Monitor displays how much processor (CPU) capacity the system is using, and how much disk space the system is using on each device.

System Monitor displays this information in a graphical interface so that users can see what the system is doing. Users can then use the same graphical interface to modify the behavior of the system.

NOTES

You may disable System Monitor at SunRay. Because this application use /proc and keep polling for information, they may adversely effect the performance of the system. But we will not change the default behavior and configuration for SunRay, if it give big impact to SunRay performance, administrators should disable them by using gconfd/APOC.

The method to disable Monitor applet:

They may use Gnome lockdown features to modify the mandatory settings of the Gnome configuration on their servers to add that applet identifier to the list of disabled applets. you may use the following command (Note: Depending on when this is set, a logout may be required to take effect) %gconftool-2 --type list --list-type string --set /apps/panel/global/disabled_applets [OAFIID:GNOME_MultiLoadApplet]

The method to disable Monitor application:

You may just remove the package containing it on their servers, or just change the permissions on the binary: %chmod 700 /bin/gnome-system-monitor.
