Stacer – System Optimizer and Monitoring Tool

Stacer is an open-source system optimizer designed for Ubuntu / Debian based distributions.

Stacer welcomes the user with a modern window featuring 9 tabs: Dashboard, Startup Apps, System Cleaner, Services, Processes, Uninstaller, Resources, APT Repository Manager, and Settings.

From a system cleaning perspective, the tool cleans package caches, crash reports, application logs, application caches, as well as emptying the trash. The tool also offers the ability to uninstall multiple packages.

Stacer was originally built using Electron and has recently been rewritten with C++. The tool is in a fairly early stage of development.

Features include:

  • Responsive design.
  • Offers a very simple, polished, and streamlined interface that looks visually appealing.

  • Manage startup applications, clean unwanted junk files, kill individual processes, uninstall specific packages on the system, and control installed software repositories.
  • Monitor the processes on the system with configurable refresh rate.
  • Monitor the system resources consumed – history of CPU, history of CPU load averages, history of disk read and write, history of memory usage, and history of network usage.
  • APT repository manager – add, edit and delete APT repositories.
  • Theme support – choose between a default and a light theme.
  • Alert messages – the application displays a warning message when CPU, memory or disk usage exceed a configurable limit.
  • Service list filter.
  • AppImage support – a format for distributing portable software on Linux without needing superuser permissions to install the application.
  • Option to change disks.
  • Autostart option.
