Is it possible, as an option, to ignore the gnome-system-monitor process itself from the gnome-system-monitor calculation (% cpu, etc.) ?

Is it possible, as an option, to ignore the gnome-system-monitor process itself from the gnome-system-monitor calculation:

No. That would make all the figures inaccurate, wouldn't it? e.g. if gnome-system-monitor was consuming 2% of CPU, so you only had 98% available, but excluding it showed that you had 100% available?

Try the Processes tab sorted by CPU usage.

Instead of looking at the processes tab, just open up a terminal and run top. It will still appear in the list of processes but uses far fewer CPU cycles than the greedy gnome-system-monitor does.
