Well its been one year since I posted this project on OCN. Not as far with it as I had planned, but I didn't really have a year plan in mind. School only seems to take more and more time, and now a job as a RoR developer....I now like to spend more of my free time away from the computer screen.
To answer some questions and other things I've heard across the net.
PerlMon doesn't display anything different that a few commands in the terminal could show. Yes, this may be true, but is it as easy? For most no. To me thats like asking why use dolphin/nautilus when you can use the terminal. To Each His Own.
The memory bug? I use the /proc filesystem to read a fair amount of info that PerlMon reports on. The /proc filesystem allows for communication between the kernel and user space. Reporting the memory on how the kernel is reporting it sounds good to me, but according to some its just not right. I've been looking into possible diffent things to try and am open to suggestions.
Divide by zero error when no swap is present? Up date PerlMon. It was fixed back in 0.1.3 I believe.
Is it available as an RPM package? As of now no. If some one wishes to make packages, then feel free to do so. At this time I haven't made any, but it is something I've thought about.
If anyone is interested in helping then just let me know. Knowledge of Perl is a must, and Gtk programming would be nice too(able to make a GUI without automated tools, just you and a text editor)!
Thanks for all the interest, support and bug reports over the past year!
