Software :: Grab Cpu Grabber - Non-interactive Cpu And Process Monitor
Jun 14, 2011
I have a few AWS instances (linux micro, fedora-like) that occasionally (4x every 24hours) trip a CloudWatch monitor for CPU utilization. alarm => 85% at 5 minute slices.
The problem with this is that we're unsure WHAT is causing it. I have an idea to poll cpu usage every 5 mins and if there's a spike (eg, => 85%) then dump some process table stuff exposing the offenders.
I have a situation where I am in a non-interactive shell. I have tried from within my non-interative shell to spawn an interactive shell but my output still does not goto me. Isn't there a way I can somehow go into /proc or somwhere and make the output my /dev/tty1? Or some way else to remedy this?The situation arises because I drop from my restricted shell environment (a sort of CLI interface), into the actual Linux shell. I cannot change the code of the CLI environment I am just faced with being in the linux shell environment and its non-interactive. Its very annoying to have to put > /dev/tty1 after every command I type.
Not to mention it seems damn near impossible to get pagers like more and less to work properly when your in a non-interactive shell.
We have the below script, to check the process MEDT, if it doesn't run , then it will send a message immediately. the same script, if I want to check if it is continously running for more than 1 hour, then it should do the action mentioned below.
I use linux and Unix and I want to monitor the memory usage for process. To prevent memory leakage and out of memory of the system. Any command or sytnax , have more better and presentable data than below command about memory usage of one process ?
The panel is not expanded and the autohide buttons are not checked. As you can see I've set the background to transparent and removed the shadow via ccsm. The only thing that doesn't look nice are the "grabbers" to move the panel arround. Can they be modified to be transparent too? Maybe editing the theme?
I cannot set the panel to expand because I use a dock which would be partly covered by the panel.
I have looked for and found several tools to show a system's total network usage. I have not, however, been able to find any that show this information in the context of individual processes. Do any such tools for linux exist?
Recently I have working on an older robot that I got which happens to have an onboard computer (Versalogic VSBC-8) on which I was able to install Lenny on. This system also has a Imagenation PCX200 frame grabber installed on it as well. The problem I am having is that no matter which software I use in Lenny, webcam,etc,etc I either get an error that the device is in use or I get a blank screen, The camera that is hooked up to it works fine as I had tested it on another pc. I also verified that the permissions were set correctly for the device in /dev
I have been googling for any kind of information on how to get this working with Lenny without much luck, before I had installed Lenny it had an old version of Redhat 8 installed on it, unfortunately the hard drive died and it was replaced, hence lenny.
I've been trying to get my Hauppauge USB Live 2 video grabber to work under Ubuntu 10.04. I have installed the drivers, and using TVTime I get a perfect picture - but no sound, and also I can't record with it. I have found a guide on how to get it with sound using MythTV, but it seems I fail at setting it up. It tells me it couldn't find the backend server, but it's running in my terminal.
I have Fedora Linux 13 64bit system. I use System Monitor to check which process is taking how much memory and cpu. Normally I have dozens of Chrome and Firefox windows open. The Processes tab shows which process is taking how much cpu/ram resources but I unfortunately there is no option like right click and make the window active that matches the PID (the one process that I have currently highlighted). Usually there is a chrome process taking up 30 or 40 percent of CPU while dozens other chrome processes taking much less cpu. I must determine which chrome window ( or any application which has multiple instances running) is taking that much CPU time. So can some one help me to solve this problem?

Ksysguard has always before shown a process table on one tab and the system load charts on a second tab. Loading Ksysguard produces an error message: "The file /home/*/.kde4/share/apps/ksysguard/Processtable.sgrd does not contain valid XML." That file contains nothing, as it's size in Dolphin is 0. Have updated KDE in Yast; removed Ksysguard 4 (which installed ver. 3) then re-installed ver 4. Still lack the process table.
This is OpenSuse 11.4 on a Toshiba A665 laptop. In other respects the system works perfectly, well almost. I'm examining a large number of files recovered by scalpel from a disk image created by ddrescue. This problem appeared while working through the nnnnnnnn.doc files. Most of them open in LibreOffice, but some produce an error message ("Not a Word 95 document"), open as slides (which is OK), or seem to freeze LO (with a CPU core at 100% in ksysguard). Lacking the process table, I'm having trouble killing the LO process (ps doesn't deliver the process number as expected; still studying it).
I am trying to find out what's my soundcard model as my sound is not working very well.I am using YasT2 - > Hardware Information to find out what is the problem. The probing hardware process starts but gets stuck at the probing monitor phase (49%). I have tried to rerun the process after rebooting the pc. I have let the process to run for a few hours but still it was stuck at the 49%What should I try to do to skip this obstacle and get information about my sound hardware.
I would like to give an idea I had for software (maybe a script). Where would be the best place for this on this site or elsewhere on the Internet? The idea is some software that will grab and put into a list all the streams available on various Internet TV sites such as URL.... I think such software could be very helpful for various open source software like XBMC Element HTPC and others. There are thousands of channels available on that site alone.
I just got a kernel update 2.6.31-17. Vmware needs to recomiple the drivers but I keep getting the below msg.Code:Could not grab your mouse.A malicious client may be eavesdropping on your session or you may have just clicked a menu or some application just decided to get focus.
I'd like to use xbmc, but at startup it grabs the mouse and keyboard focus. I'd like it to stop doing that, since I want to use X multi pointer feature, one pointer for xmbc screen, the other a working kde desktop. (proof of concept working with enna media center)
I have a text file that contains the following string of numbers and letters:
Code: Mean track length: 3.45 +/- 1.23 mm or
Code: Mean track length: 22.45 +/- 12.23 mm
In the first example, I would like to grab only 3.45 and write it into a new file. Then I would like to grab only 1.23 and write it into another file. I have 80,000 files to do and those numbers can be different every time.
I'd like to take audio track from a video clip in FLV container and save it to something playable by portable music players. Are there any easy to use tools for that? I know how to do that using console tools (mplayer+lame/oggenc), but I'd like to get something clickable, preferably for GNOME.
I'm trying to get an output of a file in numeric order. Basically I need the starting number and the ending number in sed this into anther file. The test2.lis file I'm just awk'ing for the first row and if its out of order put it in order so I can grab the first and last numbers. I'm sure I can do this all in an array. The first sed command gets rid of blank lines and outputs it to a file. Then I head and tail for the first and last number then I want to sed those numbers into a file that exsist.
