What kind of graphic card are you using (intel/nvidia/ATI)? You can find this by running the command "lspci | grep VGA" in a terminal and pasting the result here.
Which driver are you using (open-source driver or binary driver)? You can find this info by running the command "jockey-text -l" in a terminal and pasting the result here.

How often do you see this?
What value are you using as the Update interval in the preferences /Resources for the graphs?

Software defect seems to be gone after update to raring. Update interval is one second.

I'm having this issue after updating 13.04 to 13.10.

Jimmy Merrild Krag (beruic) wrote :

Also, every time I open the settings, all update intervals display as 0 until I edit them.

The grids disappear whenever changing to another program, and they reappear if I resize he window.

Robert Roth (evfool) wrote :

Yes, that's an issue fixed upstream, however Ubuntu still uses an older version, and probably won't get upgraded to the current stable release in the next cycle either, so unless someone's willing to backport the patch, this won't change.

Thanks for taking the time to comment to help Ubuntu improve.

@Robert: is the new version depending on a GTK newer than 3.8? If not we might want to update this cycle...

@Sebastian: Yes, System Monitor has been updated along with the other applications to fit in the GNOME ecosystem with headerbars, which is a 3.10 feature, and requires gtk 3.10. I have been looking at what could be easily backported, but system monitor has undergone some refactorings this cycle too, so changes are not too easily backported.
I will take some more time and to pick the best bugfixes and the ones which also appear in launchpad and can be ported easily, and come up with a system monitor ubuntu package update featuring those ones.

@Sebastian: I have checked from the system monitor git repo log what would be worth porting, and there's not much worth porting, basically the fix for this bug and another one for a wording change in bug #1156238. The other ones, some performance improvements and memory leak fixes are also interesting, but as these happened after serious refactorings, they can not be easily ported.
With the ones I have mentioned I have created a branch with new patches for it in /debian/patches, unfortunately bzr builddeb fails with some strange error, looks like it wants to revert the fix for the graph grid rendering issue based on the upstream
I would appreciate if you could take a look into that branch, based on ubuntu:gnome-system-monitor, see it at lp:~evfool/gnome-system-monitor/stableupdates.
