       WindowMaker Dock or Afterstep Wharf but should work with others as well. It  displays  CPU
       usage, load average, memory utilization, pages and swaps.

       The  upper  most  section  of the applet displays CPU usage on the left, while numerically
       representing load average on the right.

       The middle bar shows memory utilization divided by ticks into shared, buffers, and  cached

       representing the amount  of  memory  that  the  X  server  is  using  with  the  numerical
       representation to the right, (optionally this section can be used to display uptime).
