            Bug ID: 15906
           Summary: How do I sort processes by CPU usage, Memory usage or
                    the like in xfce4-taskmanage
    Classification: Apps
           Product: Xfce4-taskmanager
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: Other
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Medium
         Component: General
          Assignee: xfce-bugs at xfce.org

  Target Milestone: ---

When I use  xfce4-taskmanager the main question is mostly:

* Who eats up all my memory? or
* Who stresses my CPU to its limits? or
* What is going on although I see no progress in the action which I have just

I thought, clicking on CPU Downward triangle gives me a display of running
processes sorted by CPU usage. However, the result shows me 0,00% usage
processes on both ends of the list and the memory consuming ones are still in
the middle!

How can I set it, that those values are averages of – say 10 or 20 seconds?

I thought, clicking on RSS Downward triangle orders the running processes by
CPU usage. (BTW: what does the abbreviation RSS stand for, Rich Site Summmary
is definitely as wrong as Rudolf Steiner Schule or Royal Statistical Society).
Unfortunately, the processes are not sorted by memory usage then, the memory
hogs are still in the middle of the list.

Under process, there are little triangles either pointing to the right or
downward. If they point to the right: do they then tell about the added RSS or
CPU usage including the items, which will be shown separately after the
triangle has been turned a downward one?
