Drag XMonitor to your hard drive. You can then eject the XMonitor disc icon and throw away the XMonitor.dmg file.
Moving the mouse over an object will display a Help Tag with information about that object. Hold the Command key to view Extended Help Tags. Command-click on an object to copy the Help Tag to your clipboard.
To change display mode, click the triangles and square/rectangular buttons, use the Menus, Contextual menu, Dock menu, or the keyboard shortcuts. Continue reading for more help and information.
Disclosure Triangles allow you to customize the information displayed by XMonitor. Keyboard shortcuts, Contextual menus, and Dock menus are also available to access common functions and display modes. Status Line mode will not display any graphs, this is a very low cpu mode. Horizontal and Vertical mode display only the graphs and optionally the icons and some data readouts in a smaller window. Both Horizontal & Vertical modes use ~30% less CPU than Normal mode. A Contextual menu can be accessed by holding Control and clicking anywhere in the application. Experiment to find the combination that works best for you. The four main displays can be option-clicked to open the History window for that display.
Email Monitoring will change the Mailbox icon to a 'you have mail' type icon if you have new mail. Clicking on this icon will revert it to the 'no mail' icon until new mail arrives.
This window will display the status of remote computers. Click on any field in the Host list and type the Hostname or IP address of a computer. If the computer is online and working, the Status field will be green with the word "up" displayed. If the computer is down it will be red and display "down". Each host will be polled every 40 seconds. If a host does not respond after that time, it will be polled again. If it does not respond after three consecutive polls its status will show "down". This window may be placed in the dock (Command-M) and will update normally. Hostnames will be saved automatically when the window is closed, and reloaded when opened again. A Notes field is provided for a description, name, etc for each host. New in 1.7, a checkbox toggles between ICMP ping and HTTP monitoring. Press Command-3, control-click on the main xmonitor window, or use the dock menu to view the Remote Hosts window. Very Small CPU hit.
The History window displays a record of activity for each of the four categories; network, load, disk, and memory. Each category can display anywhere from 60 minutes to 60 days of historical data. The Update Interval controls the compression rate of data. For example, an update interval of 5 would show 5 hours (5*1 hour) of hourly data and 5 days (5*1 day) of daily data. The current compression information is available in the graph selection menu and in the help tag. This window may be placed in the dock (Command-M) and will update normally. Press Command-2, control-click on the XMonitor window, or use the Dock menu to view the History window. Small CPU hit.
The first time you install XMonitor, you can open the preferences menu to configure XMonitor and enable features such as email monitoring.
Transparency is adjusted via a slider. Move it to the right and XMonitor becomes more transparent. Move it to the left and it becomes more opaque. If it is all the way to the left, transparency will be disabled. If greater than 0 Small CPU hit.
Priority adjusts when XMonitor will receive CPU time (See: 'renice' below). At the lowest setting, XMonitor will run only when nothing else in Mac OS X wants to, at the highest setting it will run with the default priority level (0).
Clicking IP Address controls what happens when you click on the IP Address display. It can copy the IP address to your clipboard, or toggle the display of LAN and External IP.
External IP will display an internet visible IP address instead of a local address.
Absolute Uptime will show the time passed since computer startup. Without this checked, time spent in Sleep mode will not be counted.
Averages displays a line in most graphs representing the 10 second average data rate. Small CPU hit.
Dock Icon allows you to put all four or any one graph into the Dock. Very small CPU hit.
Graphing can be in combined or dual mode. Dual mode displays send/write/system data from the top down while displaying receive/read/user from the bottom. Combined displays them stacked together from the bottom.
Email Monitoring allows you to be notified if you have new mail. It also displays how many messages you have waiting. This will not download, delete, or otherwise affect normal operations of your email. POP3 and IMAP protocols are available.
Snap To Edge of Screen allows the XMonitor window to 'snap' to the edge of the screen when it gets close.
Automatically Hide and Show Shows the XMonitor window when the mouse moves over its location. If XMonitor gets 'lost' underneath the Dock use the "Restore Defaults" button in the preferences or press Command-Option-d to hide the dock. Dual monitors are not officially supported with this option turned on and you may experience crashes or odd behavior if XMonitor is on the second monitor.
Update Interval specifies how often to poll the system and display the information (in seconds). Lowering this will decrease the amount of CPU time used. An update interval greater than ~10 may cause data to go off the graphs. 1=High CPU hit.
Scale Averaging will truncate the highest two spikes of each graph. This keeps the graphs from scaling upwards if only one or two spikes are off the chart.
Scale defaults to automatic scaling, which adjusts the scale of each graph according to how much data is currently displayed. This can be overridden and set to a specific scale.
Network Interface determines which network device will be monitored.
Save History saves data to generate reports in the History window. Small CPU hit.
Export Host Status saves the status (up, down, or err) of all hosts to the specified text file. This file is updated whenever a host is added, removed, or its status changes. Useful for remotely checking the status via a web site. Very small CPU hit.
Export History saves all history graphs as jpeg images and creates xmonstatus.html which displays the images in a table and includes other statistics about the host computer. This data is exported if a destination is selected, and the History window is open. Moderate CPU hit.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is "load average"?
The load average provides a convenient way to summarize the activity on a system. UNIX defines the load average as the average number of processes in the kernel's run queue during an interval. A "process" is a single stream of instructions. Most programs run as a single process, but some spawn (UNIX terminology: "fork") other processes as they run. A load average of 3 to 5 is not that severe, but you normally see the load averaging less than one or two.
What are page faults?
Interrupts that occur when a program requests data that is not currently in memory. The interrupt triggers the operating system to fetch the data from a disk and load it into RAM. These are shown in the Memory graph.
Mac OS X copies a certain number of pages from your storage device to main memory. When a program needs a page that is not in main memory, the operating system copies the required page into memory and copies another page back to the disk. Each time a page is needed that is not currently in memory, a page fault occurs.
What is Update Interval and what does it do?
This is best explained with an example: If the update interval is set to 10, XMonitor will only update its graphs, speeds, and most other information every 10 seconds. The graphs will be condensed--the last ten seconds of data will only take up one line (1 pixel of width) in the graph, not 10. However, the textual information will be in data per second, not data per ten seconds. This is a good way to make XMonitor use less of your CPU. An update interval of 2 will cause XMonitor to use 45% less cpu, an interval of 4 would use 80% less CPU time. You can test this using the Terminal command 'top -a'.
What does 'renice'ing do?
Thanks to it's BSD kernel, Mac OS X has an application scheduling system. You are able to make Applications have a very high priority and they will always get cpu time before any other program. Alternatively, you may prioritize an application to the lowest level and it will only get cpu time after all other processes with a higher priority have gotten theirs. The default slider value represents a normal priority level (0). Moving the slider will lower XMonitors priority.
What's this "CPU hit" stuff?
By enabling, disabling, or changing preferences in XMonitor you can fine-tune not only what information you see, but also how much CPU time is used by XMonitor. A "very small" cpu hit would save a barely noticeable amount of cpu time (less than 2%). "Small" CPU hit would possibly reduce XMonitor's CPU usage by 5-10%. "High" CPU hit items can reduce CPU usage by as much as 80-90%.
What are all these numbers and letters all over the place? (useless debugging symbols)
Some shortened terms are used to conserve screen space:
G = Gigabytes(1024 Megabytes)
M = Megabytes(1024 Kilobytes)
K = Kilobytes(1024 Bytes)
B = Bytes(8 bits)
d = days
h = hours
m = minutes
u = used memory
f = free memory
Bug Reporting is built into XMonitor. If you experience an error you will have the option of sending a bug report from within XMonitor. It is highly recommended you submit a bug report so any bugs will be fixed in the next version. Alternatively, you may email firstname.lastname@example.org. There are a few screen artifacts from time to time which are by-products of techniques used to minimize cpu usage.
