xrestop - Man Page

monitor server resources used by X11 clients


xrestop --help
xrestop [ --display display ] [ --batch ] [ --delay-time seconds ] [ --max-samples count ]


Xrestop uses the X-Resource extension to provide 'top'-like statistics of  each connected X11 client's server-side resource usage.  It is intended  as a developer tool to aid more efficient server resource usage and  debug server-side resource leakage.


--help,  -h

Show usage and exit.

--version,  -V

Print version and exit.

--display,  -d <display>

Specify X11 display to monitor.

--delay-time,  -t <seconds>

Time in seconds between taking samples. Default is 2 seconds.

--batch,  -b

Run in batch mode. Slightly more detailed infomation is streamed to  stdout rather than the usual curses interface. This mode is intended for debugging a single client with something like
 xrestop -b | grep -A 14 appname

--max-samples,  -m <count>

Specify number of times to gather and display results. Default is continuous, which can be set with 0 (zero).
