The basic idea...

"The basic idea behind open source is very simple. When programmers on the Internet can read, redistribute, and modify the source for a piece of software, it evolves. People improve it, people adapt it, people fix bugs. And this can happen at a speed that, if one is used to the slow pace of conventional software development, seems astonishing...
...The Open Source pages exist to make this case to the commercial world."    - Introduction to Open Source -

* AnotherMonitor

market download AnotherMonitor monitors and records the CPU and memory usage of Android devices. It is ideal to find out the device CPU and memory resources state in real time.

It has 2 main options:
- It shows a graphic and several text labels wherein the values of the CPU and memory usage are updated every 0.5, 1, 2 or 4 seconds.
- It can record on a CSV file the read values for a later usage and process in a spreadsheet program.

The app can run in the background. Then, the second option is specially interesting since, in the background, AnotherMonitor consumes little resources and can monitor and record the CPU and memory values that other applications are using in the foreground.

The app can be closed, and the recording of values can be started from the buttons shown in the system bar.

In order to get the CPU usage the app does not make use of the 'Top' command from Linux but instead it parses the '/proc/stat' file and work the calculations out with the user and system time.

Don't forget to leave your feedback. It will help to improve the app day by day.
