I am using a RSP2 from SDRPlay for my receiver.  It will allow me to 
scan 3 bands.  Here are the images you requested.

Here is the skimmer traffic, your only concerned with the lines in the 
blue box.  These lines will continue to repeat.  The other lines is when 
I was running the aggregator and skimserver manually.


Here is the SkimmerServer Status

The values in yellow Do not change, The value in red (CPU Load) does 
change between 1.8% to 5%
