gkrellm

Gkrellm is a system monitor that is written in gtk.

 

It has quite a few useful features, , monitor cpu activity, memory and disk usage statistics, you can also view how your ethernet ports are being used.   One feature I also found was that it can also monitor your e-mail inbox (see the very bottom) and it will let you know when a new e-mail comes in,  click on the button and your e-mail client will pop up.   The memory usage stats include both swap and normal RAM usage
