    I forget the name of the package off the top of my head, but
there's a very useful one that graphs the output of the performance
data of the core itself that can be useful in situations like this.

    There is also the executable that's built along with the core,
"icingastats" that will tell you how many external commands have
been processed over the past 1/5/15 minute time-frame as well as a
count of Used/High/Total Command Buffers.

    That having been said, you'll need to be accepting a whole boat-
load of external commands (or reading the command file very
infrequently) to exhaust the default of 4096 slots.
