Version 1.0 gets the data from /proc/partitions. This is where the sar patch puts its data that I use. It was written by Stephen Tweedie. Redhat 8.0 and Mandrake 8.2 already have this patch applied. Kernel 2.4.20 has this patch already included. Qt 3.0 or later is also required. QT 3.1 or later is recommended for full functionallity. This can be downloaded from

To Do List

  1. Fix the segmentation fault when a new disk or filesystem is added while spm2 is running
  2. Being able to monitor raw block devices
  3. Adding a performance mode to help benchmarkers and testers to get timed and logged results that can later be printed or saved


NEWS ------- Version 1.1 has been released. Now supports linux kernel 2.6
This monitor was programmed with some code and ideas from ksysguard.
