well, thx for the hint. the tool indeed looks nice, and curious as i am,
i monitored some action with it. i started it with
"systat -vmstat 1 >/dev/ttyv9 &"
to get the output to a non-shelled terminal and watch the stats on another
screen. right now, the only process currently still working on the system
is the monitor tool itself:
