Conky is a lightweight system monitor that provides essential information in an easy-to-understand, highly customizable interface. The software is a fork of TORSMO, which is no longer maintained. Conky monitors your CPU usage, running processes, memory, and swap usage, and other system information, and displays the information as text or as a graph.
Or, if that doesn’t do it for you, think of Conky as a slimmer, trimmer, more configurable gkrellm or adesklets. Conky is text-based, so it is super fast and has a very small footprint.
