ProcMeter is a framework on which a number of modules (plugins) are loaded. More modules can be written as required to perform more monitoring and informational functions.
The statistics that are displayed are grouped by module, with a menu allowing selection of module and a sub-menu for each output available for that module.
Advanced Power Management information. These outputs are only available if you have configured the kernel to have the APM feature.
Monitors the e-mail inbox (in /var/spool/mail/username or /var/mail/username) and indicates the number of e-mails that are waiting and the size.
The current date and time and the amount of time since the system was last booted.
Shows the percentage of the disk that is used and the amount of free space for each of the local disks that it finds are mounted or can be mounted when the program starts.
Monitors the size and number of lines and the rate of increase of these in a set of log files.
The amount of memory that is used for programs, buffers, cache and the amount that is free.
The network devices and the amount of traffic on each of them. It will automatically pick up available devices when it starts.
The load average and the number of processes running and starting.
Information about the procmeter program itself.
Hardware sensors for temperature and fan speed. (Requires sensor hardware and kernel patch from http://www.netroedge.com/~lm78/ or version 2.6 kernel).
Low level system statistics. For example CPU usage, disk usage, swapping and paging.
Low level system statistics about virtual memory (swaping and paging) for kernel version 2.5 where the information has moved from the Statistics section.
Statistics about individual CPU usage including support for SMP machines.
Statistics about individual disk usage including support for up to 4 disks.
Statistics about individual interrupts including support for up to 32 interrupts.
The system information from the uname program, hostname and Linux kernel version.
Information about wireless network devices. It will automatically pick up available devices when it starts.
For systems with the Transmeta Crueso processor, information about longrun. Will not work unless the kernel is compiled with CPUID support, and /dev/cpu/0/cpuid must be readable by procmeter.
Advanced Configuration and Power Interface information. These outputs are only available if you have enabled ACPI in the Linux kernel and you have the appropriate hardware. ACPI can report various information about a system's battery, and may also have thermal outputs available.
For each of the outputs there is a properties information window that can be used to check the meaning of an output and other properties about it.

· This version doesn't crash if the machine has a very large number of interrupt numbers.
· A few other small bugfixes have been made.
