Description:

The sysmon plasmoid is based on KDE standard system load plasmoids which are constrained to some chosen metrics like CPU load. In contrast, the sysmon can show any metric provided by the System Monitor data source engine.

Installation is pretty simple and straight forward:

$ git clone https://github.com/burlog/plasmoid-sysmon.git plasmoid-sysmon
$ cd plasmoid-sysmon
$ plasmapkg2 -t plasmoid -i ./plasmoid

Absolutely love this! I really hope it's being further developed. A few suggestions: values in circular mode are displayed with "5,..." when space is too narrow, values without fractional part would look much better. CPU usage less than 1% is displayed in per mill which looks odd. Plotter mode ignores maximum value which actually makes it useless. Showing the exceed of maximum value in a different colour would make it even more useful.

Installed with ease on my KDE Manjaro 17. However the 'Source Name' column in Data Sources is blank. Any tips?

Hi Burlog

After above I tried using plasmoidviewer differently and got the following:

[munawar@dell com.github.burlog.plasmoid-sysmon]$ plasmoidviewer --applet /.local/share/plasma/plasmoids/com.github.burlog.plasmoid-sysmon

Hi,

it seems like that systemmonitor doesn't provide any "sources" or they aren't added to table in Data Sources table.

Do you see any rows in this table and just the sources name column is empty or even rows is missing?

Have you tried to open the configuration dialog and click to Data Sources tab in plasmoidviewer?

Is there any "error" message in plasmoidviewer console output if you try it?

Is ksysguardd process running?

$ ps ax | grep ksysguardd

You can also try to see if systemmonitor is in output of this command

$ plasmaengineexplorer --list systemmonitor

and if yes do you see any DataSources:

$ plasmaengineexplorer --engine systemmonitor

You can edit ~/.local/share/plasma/plasmoids/com.github.burlog.plasmoid-sysmon/contents/ui/DataSourcesConfig.qml file and add new lines between 73-74 and 74-75 lines how the example shows:

for (var i in systemmonitor.sources) {
print("before filter", i)
if (systemmonitor.sources[i].match(/[^\x{0000}-\x{007F}]/)) continue
print("after filter", i)

After file saving the plasma must be restarted. You can logout and login or you can run

$ killall plasmashell && plasmashell

Thanks for "debuging" :)
