Don't know if this is the correct forum for the post, but it seemed reasonable
I'm trying to create a conky configuration that will display specific processes and their status (such as apached, sshd, etc). I browsed through the available conky objects and didn't see anything that would apply. The "top type num" feature works, but you can only call processes via their CPU usage.
I know it seems a bit static to have the status of such processes always displayed, but I'm paranoid and like to verify that everything is still running. Any help is appreciated.
Check this thread for a whole lot of good info about conky and screenshots are included free. Maybe you can find some tips here to help you with what you need.
