• system monitoring tools e.t.c.

    I just find glances:
    An Eye on your system

    Glances is a cross-platform system monitoring tool written in Python.

    I do not take a deeper look inside for now but it gives a good overview at glance!



  • Just installed it also!

    It looks great! Thank you for bringing this unique little program to my attention!

  • Glances is a big eye to see and determoinar as the system goes, but the problem is that, at least for me, it works with certain kernel, at the moment with the last LTS kernel does not work, and the problem is always Python:

    $ glances

  • Maybe it could be that hddtemp does not take the sensors from an sdd disk and if it takes an analog hdd:

    # hddtemp /dev/sdb
    WARNING: Drive /dev/sdb doesn't seem to have a temperature sensor.
    WARNING: This doesn't mean it hasn't got one.
    WARNING: If you are sure it has one, please contact me ([email protected]).
    WARNING: See --help, --debug and --drivebase options.
    /dev/sdb: Micron C400 RealSSD mSAT A23BG          �:  no sensor
    # hddtemp /dev/sda
    /dev/sda: WDC WD5000LPVT-75G33T0: 23°C

    Now I also find that it works and opens as root, without problems, which is not the best for an application and would normally open as normal user $

  • @joekamprad Yeah it’s a great tool. I’ve been using it for quite a while now because it also shows disk usage, which the system monitor GUI doesn’t unfortunately. It would be nice if the sysmon GUI would use glances as a backend so all these things can be shown in the GUI

  • @judd There’s just been an update, maybe that includes a fix for your issue?

  • @EarthMind said in system monitoring tools e.t.c.:

    @judd There’s just been an update, maybe that includes a fix for your issue?

    In today’s latest update, it does not work either, thank you anyway!

  • This is a great tool. Thanks @joekamprad.

    @judd BTW, there is a --disable-hddtemp switch. That might work.
