procps: Utilities for monitoring your system and processes on your system1

Package available in: [trunk] [8.0] [7.0] [6.0] [2.1]

The procps package contains a set of system utilities which provide system information. Procps includes ps, free, sessreg, skill, snice, tload, top, uptime, vmstat, w, and watch. The ps command displays a snapshot of running processes. The top command provides a repetitive update of the statuses of running processes. The free command displays the amounts of free and used memory on your system. Sessreg is a simple program for managing utmp/wtmp entries for xdm sessions. The skill command sends a terminate command (or another specified signal) to a specified set of processes. The snice command is used to change the scheduling priority of specified processes. The tload command prints a graph of the current system load average to a specified tty. The uptime command displays the current time, how long the system has been running, how many users are logged on and system load averages for the past one, five and fifteen minutes. The w command displays a list of the users who are currently logged on and what they're running. The watch program watches a running program. The vmstat command displays virtual memory statistics about processes, memory, paging, block I/O, traps and CPU activity.
