Conky

Conky is an open-source, lightweight system monitor and desktop customization tool for Linux. Conky can monitor various system properties including CPU/memory/disk usage, processes, network interface, system temperature, and a lot more, and its monitoring results are drawn directly into the Linux desktop theme. Conky is fully configurable and scriptable. Its functionality can easily be extended by writing scripts in Lua scripting language, which obtain information from other external tools. There are many available pre-made Conky configurations and template scripts which one can download and use.
