Description:

This is the fork of famous wmnet WindowMaker applet.
KDE system monitor + sysguard is not the thing I want to see on
my desktop. Too slow, wants ksysguardd etc.

So, here is release of kwmnet.

This is simple applet that show nice fast moving network device monitor in your kicker panel.

UPD: Version 0.2. Added GUI configurator
UPD: Version 0.3. Code cleanup and GUI configurator improvements
UPD: SF Project opened: http://sourceforge.net/projects/kwmnet/

1.First of all, if you didn't change default settings, you have 10Mbytes/sec maximum rate. Even with log scale, transmission can look like points, because usually TX/RX is something like 1/20 or even less. You transmit a little, while receive a lot.
Try to upload something, and see.

2. Set maximum rate to speed of your connection - f.e. if you have 512k ADSL - it will be 512/8 = 64000 bytes/sec. This will grow TX/RX.

3.Initial wmnet suppose square, fixed-size applet, so low profile setting of kicker can make it ugly. Try to make kicker panel "Middle" size.
I understand, that it can be unacceptible, especially if you have small screen, but there can be a solution - say, to implement an option to turn off top bar of applet with digital speed and direction indicators. This will make graphs taller.

At least, on your screenshot I see
1. 2 small trnsmissions (say, you send HTTP request - just few bytes)
2. 2 not so small receptions (say, server send you requested pages - kilobytes).

So, there are small points for small TX and something not so small for RX.

I don't know what exact activity you have, so, I can't tell you what's exactly on yous screenshot.

k. i undestrand about #1 from my screenshot. and thanks for the quick reply.

but for #2, i make another screenshot:
http://img201.imageshack.us/img201/79/snapshot35sv5.jpg

did you see the little white bar at the right edge of the applet (near the down arrow))? it's not the TX, it's always there even when there's no traffic. so what is it? is that normal?

btw, i make some RPMs for opensuse:
http://repos.opensuse.org/KDE:/Community
currently there're only x86_64, i586 package will be available when the Opensuse Build Service team fixed the error.

White bars is from wnmet. As I understand, it makes applet look etched. There are similar black lines on top and left sides.

May be it's also a point to make it in KDE palette and switchable.
