Meltium is a small graphical CPU-usage meter which displays a user
selectable picture and applies some colourisation using a user selectable
alpha map and colour table to it. Additionally the CPU-usage is also
displayed in the screentitle when Meltium's window is the active one.
Copy Meltium to some place you like and start it from there.
The following arguments work from both Ambient (tooltypes) and CLI.
CPUPIC: Specify a picture to display. This picture will be displayed in
the window. Meltium supports window transparency by using colour
$ff00ff (pink) in the cpu picture. See example 'cpupic' file.
ALPHAPIC: This picture contains the colourisation map used to tint the
picture. See example 'alphapic' file.
COLOURS: A file that contains colour information used to tint the picture
according to cpu usage and alpha map. There should be 356 lines
in the file whereas each line represents one colour entry. See
example 'colours' file.
TASKS: Here you can provide a space sperated list of tasks to be excluded
PRI: Specify Meltium's own task priority.
Here is an example of how to run Meltium and exclude DNETC task from
accounting to the CPU-usage.
