Is there any way to pin a terminal to the panel?

I'm monitoring a server via top and would like to have some of the information (at least the first row e.g. the load average) always on my active workspace.

I could reduce the terminal size and have it always on top and always on visible workspace but this still takes to much space.

What I would like is a possibilty to add some of the top information to a notifier in the top panel.
Is there any setting in terminal I could use, or are there any other possibilities?
I don't need to use terminal if there is any other application that can be used to show this information.

  • You could try the applets. There are some applets that show the utilization, and CPU usage. I also use AWN, that has a CPU monitor. imgur.com/afneR Apr 1, 2011 at 13:49

You could try guakeInstall guake - this is a drop-down terminal, which can be configured to be visible in a small line under the top panel.

  • It's even worse, as it does not allow me to have multiple terminal windows side by side. I would have to switch tabs.
