Hi there. ttyload is a little *NIX utility I wrote which is meant to give a color-coded graph of load averages over time. More information to come -- but by popular demand, I've gone ahead and "released" what I've got so far. Please respect my requests as outlined in the LICENSE file contained in the tarball. Screenshots are also available, if you want to see what it looks like.
In theory, this should work, or be relatively easily made to work, on most POSIX/UNIX type platforms. Platforms known to work include:
Porting for platforms that are derivatives of one of these should be trivially easy. Porting for other platforms should also be quite doable, though may require a bit more work. The program is structured to be (I hope) easy to port.

2013-03-12: ttyload-0.5.3.tar.bz2 is now available. Fixed the first github-tracked issue, about how time labels displayed along the bottom, especially with large
-i values (e.g.
2011-02-14: ttyload-0.5.2.tar.bz2 is now available. Minor (but old) bug fix -- now correctly displays the time at the top of the page!
2011-02-06: ttyload-0.5.1.tar.bz2 is now available. Minimal changes from 0.5, mostly just the fact that this project is now on GitHub!
2008-09-16: ttyload-0.5.tar.gz is now available for download. Several new options and behaviors added, most notably initial detection of window size. Also, new licensing, which should hopefully be OSS-compatible.
Previous version still available: ttyload version 0.4.4 (source code in tar.gz format)

See the change log for past changes.
Hi there. Donations to support ttyload (or really, its author) are welcome, via the following methods:
(At some point, I had the theory of changing the license on this so that it would become GratuityWare, but I'm not sure if/when this might happen, because I haven't written the GratuityWare Public License yet... and I'm not sure I ever will bother. ;-)
 -- I also have a "screenshot" from a fan... that and perhaps future fanmail is being collected on the ttyload fan mail page.
 -- if 'uname -s' on your IRIX machine says "IRIX64", then in the ttyload directory, run this command before typing make: 'ln -s IRIX arch/IRIX64'. In a future release, I'll probably obviate the need to do this, but that works fine for the 0.4.3 release, and should continue to be the workaround until I get around to fixing it for real. :-)
