ROX System Monitor

The ROX System Monitor displays a large window containing two bar charts. One shows the Free/Used space on each mounted filesystem, and the other shows a list of processes with Shared/Unshared/Paged-out memory. A popup menu allows processes to be paused, resumed, or killed. The aim is to show the information you normally want from a system viewer without the clutter.
