Looking for graphical app for system thermal monitoring

I am looking for GUI applications for monitoring CPU and GPU thermals with similar functionality to the Asus AI Suite3 and MSI Afterburner in Windows. Any help is appreciated, I have found some options but none really work for me.

Hello: there is a Thermal Monitor plasmoid, that you can add from the taskbar, with it it indicates the temperatures that you choose. (GitHub - kotelnik/plasma-applet-thermal-monitor: Plasma 5 applet for monitoring CPU, GPU and other available temperature sensors.) .
It is also interesting that sensors detect temperatures, to do this, try it first, executing on the console:
HP-OMEN:~ # sensors
Adapter: ISA adapter
Package id 0: +47.0°C (high = +100.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
Core 0: +45.0°C (high = +100.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
Core 1: +46.0°C (high = +100.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
Core 2: +45.0°C (high = +100.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
Core 3: +45.0°C (high = +100.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
Core 4: +46.0°C (high = +100.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
Core 5: +45.0°C (high = +100.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)

Adapter: Virtual device
temp1: +62.0°C

Adapter: PCI adapter
temp1: +44.0°C (high = +95.0°C, hyst = +3.0°C)
(crit = +105.0°C, hyst = +5.0°C)
(emerg = +135.0°C, hyst = +5.0°C)

Adapter: ACPI interface
in0: +16.75V

If it is positive, you can add thermal monitor from the taskbar and it looks like this:



Assuming the KDE Plasma desktop.
If, you’re using something else, such as GNOME or whatever, the widget is something else …

I don’t know Asus AI Suite3 or MSI Afterburner but I use

# zypper se -si gkrellm*

S  | Name             | Type    | Version     | Arch   | Repository
i+ | gkrellm          | package | 2.3.11-2.10 | x86_64 | openSUSE Tumbleweed Oss

i  | gkrellm-lang     | package | 2.3.11-2.10 | noarch | openSUSE Tumbleweed Oss

The one I use is called “Vitals” (a GNOME extension).

I use conky here, with some lua scripting it would be possible to duplicate for a fancy UI…

This is basically what I’m looking for here. I did install conky but it comes up in a generic black X window and its hard to read an navigate, how can I add some sort of front end to it like what you have displayed there? Oh and I am using KDE.

I know it’s old, but still very useful : gkrellm

@Ubert3ch my conky has been crafted over years :wink:

I use a lua background that you can change color and transparency, aside from conky built-ins other parts are from the likes of nvidia-smi, turbostat, sensors.

Background: https://github.com/aignas/binfiles/blob/master/conky-draw_bg.lua

You load by adding in the conky.config section;


   lua_load = 'draw_bg.lua',
   lua_draw_hook_pre = 'draw_bg'


conky.text = [[

Look at (even though your on Plasma) https://www.gnome-look.org/browse?cat=124 for conky themes…

@Ubert3ch This one might be appropriate for you: https://www.gnome-look.org/p/1412957


I have no Gnome and no idea what I can use; Now, on the web, they speak of Hard Monitor, and the multitude of sensors that you can use, in my case I do not know the application of Gnome:
For the Opensuse software screen this appears:



Port by Omegaphil of the venerable Gnome Hardware Apply Monitor Originally Written by Ole Laursen - Display Various System Stats (CPU, Filesystem and Network Usage Among Others) In Graphs, Visualisations or with Text.
There is no official package available for All Distributions, but I don’t know until Punro is used for Gnome, or is exclusive to XFCE.



Brilliant! :sunglasses:
