A mod of the cpu/memory plugin for aero aio. The hardware information is gathered via backends. You can easily write a python backend for your hardware. Look at the files cpumemv2_backend.py, cpumemv2_default.py and cpumemv2_i8k.py to learn how to write backends.

- default backend that supports CPU temeratures via /proc/acpi/thermal_zone and hard disk temperatures via hddtemp. You can start hddtemp by (as root)
hddtemp -d /dev/hda
Replace hda with the hard disk you want monitored.
- ibmacpi backend (for IBM laptops). Thanks to Frank Fiene. Supports CPU, GPU, hdd, fan and pci data, via the ibm acpi kernel module. Boy those IBM laptops have a lot of sensors!
- i8k backend (for Dell laptops). Supports cpu temp and fan speeds via the i8k kernel module.
- nvidia backend that support reading the nvidia gpu core temp
- The backends are cascaded. The code automatically looks through all backends for support of each feature. the final feature set is the union of all backends
- If an update temporarily fails (this tends to happen with hddtemp), it is indicated on the theme by the : in front of the sensor name becoming an _


- Use the config dialog of Aero AIO to install the .aiz file
- The port on which the plugin tries to communicate with hddtemp can be configured
- If your hardware isn't supported write a backend and send it to me


ver 2.1.4
- Add support for NVidia GPU core temp

ver 2.1.3
- Use Aero AIO 0.9.1 API

ver 2.1.2
- Improved exception handling code in hddtemp module in default backend

ver 2.1.1
- Fixed possible division by zero bug in mem module

ver 2.1.0
- Moved CPU temp information into title

ver 2.0.4
- Fixed a bug that could cause the swap bar to not show up

ver 2.0.3
- Added a backend for IBM laptops and fixed a couple of typos. Big thank you to Frank Fiene

ver 2.0.2
- Changed to the .aiz Aer AIO plugin format

ver 2.0.1
- Made backend loading fully automatic, all you need to do is write the backend and put it in the scripts folder. It will be automatically detected and used where applicable
- Fixed various minor API bugs

ver 2.0.0
- Separated the hardware detection/monitoring code into backends
- Wrote the default and Dell i8k backends

ver 1.0.3
- Added auto-detection of ibm ACPI temp file

ver 1.0.2
- added debugging code to hddTemp

Great work i love the the way it takes up less space and till shows all the funtions
but it would be great if it could show the upload and download speeds when using ppp0

Thanks. There is a network plugin for aero aio that does this, you can set it up on an autoswitch with the cpu/mem plugin, or have two aios running.

Just wanted to say thanks for all the hard work in making this a professional looking and usable tool. You have lowered my frustration level significantly.

 wrong processor temp

With my AMD64 Winchester, on openSUSE 10.2, the CPU temp should be form the CPU_Temp sensor instead of from ACPI Thermal Zone... anyone know how to change this? Aero-AIO sensors/HD temp monitor has it right.

I'm guessing i need the correct /proc?

Thanks (semi-n00b here).

Are the reported temperatures significantly different? i.e. different by something other than a constant offset?

It shows 22C all the time, instead of fluctuating from 50C to 35C. The 50-35 is what the BIOS reports, and other tools in Windows, so I am confident these temps are correct...

Thanks for any help you can provide... and even if we don't resolve it, thanks for taking a interest!

Well how is the temperature reported? If you can provide a file from which it is read or a command used to get it, I can integrate that into the code.

The other Aero AIO monitor (see above) gets CPU_Temp from a hardware sensor called "w83627thf" according to KDE System Guard, for my nforce4 motherboard.

~> sensors
Adapter: ISA adapter
VCore: +1.04 V (min = +0.00 V, max = +3.84 V)
+12V: +12.46 V (min = +11.86 V, max = +2.74 V) ALARM
+3.3V: +3.14 V (min = +0.64 V, max = +0.51 V) ALARM
+5V: +4.99 V (min = +3.44 V, max = +0.96 V) ALARM
-12V: -12.53 V (min = -11.95 V, max = -4.38 V) ALARM
V5SB: +5.03 V (min = +3.23 V, max = +1.08 V) ALARM
VBat: +2.99 V (min = +0.32 V, max = +1.76 V) ALARM
fan1: 0 RPM (min = 33750 RPM, div = 2) ALARM
CPU Fan: 1739 RPM (min = -1 RPM, div = 8) ALARM
fan3: 8035 RPM (min = 9642 RPM, div = 2) ALARM
M/B Temp: +42°C (high = +0°C, hyst = +64°C) sensor = thermistor
CPU Temp: +46.0°C (high = +80°C, hyst = +75°C) sensor = thermistor
temp3: +27.5°C (high = +80°C, hyst = +75°C) sensor = diode
vid: +0.000 V (VRM Version 2.4)

Thanks. I don't know enough about your monitor to say how it could get this info...

Does the following command (run as normal user get the info?)
sensors | cut -d' ' -f3 | tr -d "+°C"

If a /etc/sensors.conf file would help, I'll email (too large to post here)

input set to -f6 displays the CPU Temp and other results:
> cut -d' ' -f6

Send me a command that extracts just the CPU temp from the sensors output and I can add it

I am not having any luck figuring out the brute-force method of outputting just the CPU Temp from the sensors command... it would appear that this is unnecessary though, since: sensor=sensor type="CPU Temp" should suffice (properly inserted of course)?

I really don't know Python... so that is about all the help I can give. Thanks for trying... I wish I could have helped more... if I do eventually figure this out, I'll be sure and post here.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
