New process-viewer release: processes disk usage
The new process-viewer version is here! It follows the sysinfo release which added processes' disk I/O usage information (you can read the blog post about this release here).
The processes tab now has a new column "disk I/O usage":
The process dialog also got a new graph:
As well as new fields:
Very convenient if you want to check which process is using all your disk bandwidth!
Even though this update was primarily focused on adding the processes disk usage information, I also made a few improvements that come handy:
- You can now close dialogs by pressing the ESC key.
- The processes' columns have now a much better display (before on the left, now on the right):
- I changed all KiB units (and equivalents) into kB (and equivalents): easier (at least for me) to think in powers of 10 instead of powers of 2.
- In next gtk-rs release, we'll make the WindowExt::destroy method unsafe. So I took a bit of advance and replaced the calls in my code with GtkWindowExt::close. If you're interested by the details of "why this change", I recommend you to read this issue.
That's it for this release! I guess next one will come when I'll add new features to sysinfo. See you then!
