This section presents the formal command syntax and the available command-line options.

vsd [ -b color ] [ -u ] [ [ -a ] [ dir ] [ file+ ]

vsd -h | -v


Append mode. Files following the -a are appended to the first one; the data in these files is merged so statistics are viewed as if they were a single file.


Set the master background color. Color may be a hex RGB value (e.g.: #d3d3ff) or a valid color name (e.g.: white). The list of recognized color names may be found at: http://www.tcl.tk/man/tcl8.6/TkCmd/colors.htm


Displays a usage line and exits.


Print version information and exit.

dir is the name of a directory; VSD will set this as the working directory for the executable, and after startup, opens the Open Statmonitor File dialog on this directory.

file is the name of a statmonitor file to be loaded as part of startup. If the -a argument is specified, multiple files will be appended, otherwise, they will be loaded separately.
