I really need to see my CPU status all the time
How many times do you fish through Task Manager in Windows or pop open a terminal to run htop to reassure yourself that your CPU is running hot? If you write code this is all the time. For one project at OSIsoft I actually bought a DEC VT-420 dumb tube and a serial-to-USB adapter whose sole purpose was to run top as I was working because I needed to kill errant programs that often. But that wasn't very green and it took up space on my desk.
I've found a better way. I have a Task Manager CPU display on my keyboard and I'm tracking my CPU% on the PI Server continuously. Using Go*.
You can use any Web API Client library you want, but this was a good way to get a one-off daemon up and running quickly in a matter of minutes.
