0.3.5 is the current version of the software pscpug.

The last release I made was in 2009, so it’s due for a refresher.

What does pscpug do?

pscpug graphs a given process’s CPU usage over time.

This is more useful than, for example, top, if you are looking to only see how one specific process’s usage is changing.

pscpug example

pscpug is currently expected to run on Linux and FreeBSD, given recent tests.

pscpug is also available, at last check, as OpenBSD and NetBSD packages.

What doesn’t it do?

  • pscpug is not useful on a dumb terminal (currently).
  • pscpug will build on Mac OS X 10.5, but will not on later versions.
