Little dock applet that monitors CPU, mem, swap and battery/power. Color configurable. More to come.


It is a dock wharf application based on the application asfatm. You can configure the application with one file.


It’s a system monitor for Linux systems running afterstep, but should work on other window managers, too. I got fed up with most other wharf system monitors that didn’t show the correct memory usage, and took up too much CPU. asmon also shows the exact amount of memory used and load avg by the numbers. The CPU bar is fairly standard, next to it is the current load average. The second bar is memory usage, taken as a whole, it represent the amount of memory used. The area before the first tick represents shared memory, the area between the two ticks is buffered memory, the area from the second tick to the end of the bar represents cached memory. The number to the right represents the number of megs currently being used. The third bar represents the amount of swap file used, and the exact number of megs the swap is using. The bottom right is are page/swap LED’s taken from wmsysmon. The right is uptime. The original program is based off of Timecop’s wmcpu.


A simple CPU and memory monitor.


devmon is a daemon that monitors sys-fs files in order to detect plugs of usb storage devices (ie : flash cards)

When a device is detected, devmon mounts it and start a dockapp that allows to launch your favorite filemanager (left click) or unmount the device (right click).

For 2.6 kernel users only!


System monitor for memory, swap, page ins/outs, read/write I/O and IRQ activity. 2.2 / 2.4 kernels, SMP support. Supports MMX to optimize UI updates. Requires a kernel module to obtain statistics.


wmalms monitors data obtained from a sensor chip: temperature, fan speed, voltage. Designed to suit any hardware supported by lm_sensors. It provides a wide range of customized features, including window appearance, order and representation of sensor data, refresh frequency, alarm mode, etc.


wmAppKill is a Window Maker dock app that lists all your running processes. You can kill any of them by double-clicking on their names.


WMBlueCPU monitors your system’s cpu usage.


This is a system monitoring dockapp, visually based on the GNOME “BubbleMon” applet (here). Basically, it displays CPU and memory load as bubbles in a jar of water. But that’s where similarity ends. New bubblemon-dockapp features translucent CPU load meter (for accurate CPU load measurement), yellow duck swimming back and forth on the water surface (just for fun), and fading load average and memory usage screens. Either of the info screens can be locked to stay on top of water/duck/cpu screen, so that you can see both statistics at once. Pretty nifty toy for your desktop. Supports Linux, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, and Solaris 2.6, 7 and 8. Code has been thoroughly optimized since version 1.0, and even with all the features compiled in, BubbleMon still uses very little CPU time. Load Average screen locked at about 20% looks particularly sexy (pictured at right). All the extra “bloated” features can be compiled out or disabled on command-line, if you prefer original “BubbleMon” look.


Dockapp to control and manage the HP Capshare Information Appliance. The goal is to provide a Linux replacement for the CapShare’s own application which HP has seen fit to discontinue.


wmcpufreq displays on a windowmaker dock application

  • the frequency in use between the maximum and minimum
  • the driver in green
  • the active governor in red Included a tool for setting governor an maximum or minimum frequency.

A simple program to monitor CPU usage.


wmcpuwatch aims to show the load of every logical CPU on the system.

It is a fork of wmmon. wmmon shows the load of up to 10 CPUs. With a little tweaking it is possible to show 12 with wmmon, but when in 2017 Intel announced a 18 core CPU (and AMD was with their Ryzen even earlier), there was time for a new dockapp.

wmcpuwatch now shows the load of all CPUs in the lower frame which allows 40 CPUs at max.


3D objects tumbling about representing CPU load. Many different objects and will select a random object if you click on the dockapp. The ability to zoom in/out and remove the percent label is present as well. wmCube runs on Linux / Solaris / OpenBSD / FreeBSD / NetBSD.


Window Maker DVB frontend monitor dock applet. Tested with skystar2.


Nice graphical ‘df’, showing you to what degree the mounted filesystems are used.


wmfu displays all sorts of information about your Linux (laptop) system. It is designed for WindowMaker, but can also be run in other window managers. It does not need external custom libraries, but does need a recent kernel, since it uses ACPI and proc/sys pseudo-filesystems to read system data.


wmgtemp is a dock app for WindowMaker that graphically displays the CPU and SYS temperatures using the lm_sensors package.


The goal of wmhdaps is to provide a tool for configuration of the Harddisk Active Protection System (HDAPS) found in some R/G/T thinkpad models. HDAPS is realized as an acceleration sensor mounted on systemboard and a userspace tool which detects based on acceleration values from sensor shocks and freezes the harddrive(s) until the “shock” is over.

In the current version 0.02 actually is only able to visualize the movements of the notebook as a 3D model based on the acceleration values read from sensor.


Yet another stupid dockapp which may improve your productivity. Or not.

wmhdplop monitors your hard drives and displays visual information about their activity (read, write, swapin, swapout), and optionally (if hddtemp is running as a daemon), displays their temperature/status.


For Dell 8XXX notebooks with installed i8kutils (kernel module needs to be loaded). It monitors the CPU temperature and the fan speed. More info in the tar file!


WMLoad is a dockable CPU meter.


A program to monitor LongRun® status.


WMMemFree monitors your physical and swap memory. A very simple app.


WindowMaker dockapp to monitor memory and swap usage. wmmemload displays the current memory and swap usage as a percentage value. It is based on wmcpuload and wmmemmon, and as such looks very nice alongside those. wmmemload is designed to work with the WindowMaker dock, but will work with other window managers as well.


This is a simple dockapp that monitors the following: the amount of users logged in, the total number of processes, the number of running (or ‘alive’) processes, the total number of forks and the system load average.


Window Maker dockapp for monitoring system information.

WMMon monitors the realtime CPU load as well as the average system load, and gives you some nice additional features too. It is intended for docking in Window Maker.

It currently provides:

  • a realtime CPU stress meter;
  • an auto-scaled average system load meter, like xload and wmavgload;
  • a realtime disk I/O stress meter;
  • auto-scaled disk I/O load meter;
  • realtime memory and swap usage meters;
  • a display for system uptime;
  • three user-defined commands to launch.

WMressel is a simple dockable X11 Resolution Selector for Window Maker that displays current X11 resolution and lets you change it through a popup menu.

Features are:

  • Display current resolution and refresh rate
  • GTK popup menu to select resolution
  • Command line options to modify display and menu behaviours (show refresh rates, doublescan modes)
  • Multiple screens support
  • Xinerama support

WindowMaker System Monitor

  • Current CPU utilization of up to two CPUs
  • On dual CPU systems, three different styles for the utilization graph are available.
  • Up to two minutes history of CPU utilization
  • Current memory usage
  • Current swap usage
  • Currently supports Linux kernel 2.2, 2.4 and 2.6

wmsysmon is a program designed for use with the Window Maker window manager for the X Window System. It monitors the following system information: Memory usage, swap usage, I/O throughput, system uptime, hardware interrupts, paging and swap activity.


An app for throttling CPU via ACPI.


Wmtop is a Windowmaker dockapp that is a mini graphical version of the cpu monitoring utility top.


wmudmount is a filesystem mounter that uses udisks to handle notification of new filesystems and mounting of the filesystems as a non-root user. It also includes a mode to display the mounted filesystems with the least free space percentage (similar to wmfsm).
