SYNOPSIS

wmfire [-b] [-c CPU] [-f COLOUR] [-F FILE] [-g GEOMETRY] [-h] [-H MAX] [-i INTERFACE] [-l] [-L MIN] [-m] [-n] [-p] [-s SPEED] [-x] [-y]

DESCRIPTION

wmfire is flaming dock app which can monitor your cpu, memory, network or a file.

o Left click to change the status monitor (unless locked)
o Middle click to hide/show nice’d process on cpu load
o Right click to change flame colour (unless locked)
o Mouse wheel up or down is the same as left click

On mouse over the cursor will disappear and be replaced by a burning spot at that location. After two seconds symbols will be burnt to represent what is being monitored. For cpu, a short solid bar represents average load or a line of dots representing the current cpu number on SMP systems. For the memory, a grid of dots is used to signify a memory array. For the network, a line of marching dots is like data passing through a cable. For file values, a spinning disk platter is shown.

(Not all window managers support all mouse over effects.)

OPTIONS

-b Activate broken window manager fix (if grey box diplayed)
-c [0..3]
  Monitor SMP CPU number X
-f [1..4]
  Change flame colour
(1:Natural 2:Coronal 3:Blue 4:Green)
-F [...] Monitor file
-g [{+-}X{+-}Y]
  Set initial window position
-h Show help
-H [...] Set maximum (high) value for file monitoring
-i [...] Change the network interface
(Default is "ppp0")
-l Lock flame colour and monitor
-L [...] Set minimum (low) value for file monitoring
-m Monitor the memory load
-n Monitor the network traffic
-p Fire effect only (no monitoring)
-s [...][K|M]
  Change the network speed - kilobytes or megabytes
(Automatic preset values for interfaces: ppp=56K eth=100M)
-x Exclude nice’d CPU load
-y Set window sticky for window managers which do not support dock apps

EXAMPLES

wmfire -F /tmp/file -L 40 -H 60 -i eth2 -s 1000M

NOTES

The file monitoring will only read the first value in a file. For complex parsing use an external program to read the required value and write it to the same file wmfire is set to read.
