new release of indicator-sysmonitor – v0.7

Another quick update.  Indicator-Sysmonitor has had a couple of new sensors added together with some fixes to the existing CPU sensor.

Workspace 1_079

For the uninitiated, Indicator-Sysmonitor is an App indicator that allows you to select and view a whole range of sensor based information.

  • memory

  • network speed,

  • cpu usage

  • file system space usage

  • swap space usage

  • battery usage

Added to this release are two new sensors:

  • upordown: this displays a smiley or unhappy face depending if the sensor detects your internet connection is up-or-down

  • publicip: this prints your public facing IP address – useful where you need to understand what your current internet IP address that the outside world sees.

The existing CPU sensor has had an important bug-fix allowing you to see the average CPU percentage usage “{cpu}” together now with the ability to see individual core usage {cpu0}, {cpu1} etc.

Don’t forget, indicator-sysmonitor can also display the output of your own scripts – bash or otherwise. For example; One question I recently answered on the projects GitHub project tracker stated that they use “notify-send” to send a visual notification to the screen via a bash script when the displayed app-indicator value hits a certain value.

One question I couldn’t answer … how do you use indicator-sysmonitor on the lockscreen & the main login greeter. If anyone knows, please let me know 🙂

I use this on Gnome-Shell + AppIndicator extension.  Obviously you can use this on Unity together with any other desktop environment that supports application-indicators.

As always – happy to receive any contributions – new sensors etc.  Just visit the project web-page.
