Ever wondered how your Raspberry Pi is doing?
Needed to restart or shutdown your RPI or kill a process?
Command Pi is the new app that combines a task manager and activity monitor in an easy to use interface. Make use of Command Pi to track your CPU usage, memory usage, temperature, turbo mode settings and restart or shutdown your RPI in just one click. Instead of showing you all the currently running processes, Command Pi will only detect the
interesting ones like XBMC, and give you the option to restart/terminate them.
Whether you are pushing your Raspberry Pi to the optimal overclocked settings, or just using your RPI as a mediacenter: Command Pi is the tool to make your life easier.
Attention: SSH needs to be enabled on your RPI
Extra note: let us know which processes you would like to be able to terminate (like XBMC). We will add them to the auto detect list.
