The Hardware Monitor applet is a small program for the Gnome panel which tries to be a beautiful all-round solution to hardware monitoring.
It also tries to be user-friendly and generally nice and sensible, integrating pleasantly with the rest of your Gnome desktop.
Here are some key features of "Hardware Monitor applet":
A graphical view where each monitor is represented by a (time, measurement) colored curve
A bar-plot view with a horizontal bar per monitor
A column view with a column (time, measurement) diagram for each monitor
A textual view which simply lists the monitors and the currently measured values
A flame view which produces spiffy flames, the sizes of which are determined by the values of the monitored device
And the applet supports monitoring the following hardware characteristics:
CPU usage (all CPUs, or one at the time) - nice'd background processes such as SETI@home are automatically ignored
Memory usage - cache and buffers are automatically ignored
Disk usage (or disk space free)
Network throughput (Ethernet, wireless, modem, serial link), either incoming or outgoing or both
Temperatures from internal sensors (e.g. system board and CPU temperatures)
Fan speeds from internal sensors
To avoid eating CPU time when it is scarce, the applet lowers its priority.
What's New in This Release:
Version 1.3 takes advantage of new API in gtkmm 2.6 to get rid of the dependency on libgnomemm and libgnomeuimm.
Included are also some bug fixes and lots of translation updates.
Use version 1.2.1 if you do not have gtkmm 2.6 yet.
