Monitor processor cores

Is there application that monitors the cores in the processor? I have the CPU widget , but it just monitors the whole processor, not the cores separately.

Cheer!

i’m not sure which “CPU widget” you’re refering to – mainly since you
don’t say which version of openSUSE or KDE you’re using.

i, on openSUSE 12.1 / KDE 4.8, find two widgets that monitor CPU usage:
“CPU Monitor” and “System Load Viewer.” both of these allow me to specify
which CPU cores i want to monitor, afer right-clicking on the widget and
choosing the “<widget name> settings” option.

Hi,
open a terminal and type “gnome-system-monitor”. Under the “ressources” tab you’ll find what you want. That works also under KDE.

phanisvara - I tinkered with the CPU widget. Now I can see load on each core. Thanks!

lenwolf - Couldn’t get it running.

If I run ksysguard in kde I can see for every core a line in the cpu load.

that’s there, but ksysguard isn’t something i’d want to run all the time
to monitor my CPU. these widgets don’t use hardly any processor power or
memory, and let me know if something out of the ordinary happens. during
normal use the bars move around in a certain way, and if one or the other
process gets stuck, i usually notice that because my “system load monitor”
looks different.

then i click on it and a (smaller version of) ksysguard opens, and i can
see what’s eating up my CPU cycles. (doesn’t always work though; sometimes
i neet htop to really find out what’s going on.) i really got used to
having system load monitor, network monitor, and temperature displayed in
a panel. it’s often alered me to hangups that i wouldn’t have noticed
otherwise, because the system remained responsive.

Hi
Conky along with a lua widget? I built an rpm to run htop on tty12 (See
my blogs).

Although top will print out realtime core usage values,

I prefer using htop which is an enhanced version of top which also graphically displays the realtime usage of cores. I’ll look at Malcom’s RPM too, but just htop by itself is OK.

Hi,

well, what error does it give?

according to my news reader (opera mail) you were replying to my previous
post, which i’m quoting here:

i didn’t mention any specific error or such; just that i keep a couple
widgets running in order to notice when processes get stuck, or something
else uses more CPU or network bandwidth than they should.
