dxsysinfo(8)							 dxsysinfo(8)


  dxsysinfo - Monitors system information such as CPU activity,	memory,	swap
  space, and file system usage


  /usr/bin/X11/dxsysinfo [options]


      Displays the CPU Activity	meter.

      Shrinks the window so that only the General Information area is visi-
      ble. The -dashview option	is ignored when	it conflicts with other
      options or when all of the components in the General Information area
      were deselected in a previous invocation of the System Information
      application.  This option	is incompatible	with the -fs option. If
      -dashview	is specified with -fs, -dashview is ignored.

  -fs Displays the File	System area.

      Displays warning lights for file systems and swap	space that have
      exceeded the recommended threshold.

      Displays the In-Use Memory meter.

      Displays the Available Swap meter.

  When these options are used on the command line, only	the specified parts
  of the application are displayed.

  A user preferences file is created in	the user's home	directory the first
  time the application runs. It	records	user-specified options and any cus-
  tomizations made while running the application. If any of the	command	line
  options other	than the -dashview option are used, the	System Information
  application does not read the	View state settings in the user	preferences
  file.	If the -dashview option	is used	on the command line without any	other
  options, the application reads the View state	settings in the	user prefer-
  ences	file, $HOME/.sysman/Dxsysinfo.

  System Information accepts all of the	standard X Toolkit command line
  options, which are documented	in the X(1X) reference page.

    +  Obtain general information about	the operating system and version,
