System Hardware Monitoring Tool

Post by VelcroSquid » Mon Sep 17, 2018 5:24 pm

Hello All,

I just wanted to share a tool that worked great for me on LM 19. I tried many of the tools I could get my hands on, but found this one performed and looked the best. If you are looking to monitor CPU/GPU temps and usage, HDD/SDD and ram usage, it has all of that. I was impressed...

sudo apt-get install gkrellm

OS: Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon
Cinnamin Version: 3.8.9
Linux Kernal: 4.15.0-34-generic
Processor: AMD Athlon 5350 APU @ 2.15 GHZ
Memory: 8 GB at 1600
SSD: Kingston 120 GB
Graphics Card: AMD Radeon HD 8400 / R3 Series

looks nice, and thanks for the info :)

I use hardinfo (from the Mint Software Manager) to provide detailed info on my Linux Mint systems, and this looks like a great tool to add to that. Did you use the 'Debian' package download for LM19?

If none of the above fixes the issue, moving from Cinnamon to XFCE will give around -5 to -10 degrees C improvements.
