I don't like how conky shows top 5 processes with "$top_io name 5" parameter. Is there any way to make conky show all of them in a column at the same time like "top" does? Couldn't find it in man, maybe somebody will help.
You could just do it yourself:
Save this to a shell script;
And call it from conky with whatever refresh interval you like;
The shell script will need some tweaking to your preferences, but it should get you started.
From the Conky Variable Documentation:
So it should be the same as top. Just specify what info you want.
