Stacer is a GUI-based open source application, written in C ++ to monitor and optimize the Linux OS. The latest build version of Stacer is 1.1.0, which provides the facility to perform terminal management, process management, host details, CPU, network and disk monitoring, management of startup applications, etc. in a single application.
