That last one doesn't seem to add anything useful with the modified GUI...
kind of silly. The bb4.com one however isn't all that bad, take page 8 for
example, that gives me lots of info that may be very useful (page
faults/second, cache hits/second), I can't find that stuff on my hobbit
server atm (and certainly not in such a orderly fashion on only one page).
