Using it on Fedora 27, cinnamon-3.8.4. Quite nice. Only warning I get is in Add/Remove Applets: "This applet contains function calls that could potentially cause Cinnamon to crash or freeze. If you are experiencing crashes or freezing, please try removing it."

Oh, yeah. The warning is on "Graphical hardware monitor". All of the other ~13 installed applets don't have the warning.

To narrow down the applet, edit file: ~/.local/share/cinnamon/applets/hwmonitor@sylfurd/applet.js and change "const ScaleRatio" from 3 to 2. To apply changes, restart Cinnamon.

Only monitoring tool to work nicely with a vertical menu bar - I like mine on the right side of the screen! :-) To install the dependency, run the following without the quotes "sudo apt install gir1.2-gtop-2.0".

Very useful. But i got error: in "System Monitor" actual CPU is 10% long time, but applet shows 100% long time and not decrease.

I have 2 requests: 1. Please let us adjust update frequency (as Jesse Boyd two weeks ago requested). 2. Please let us adjust the width. I want to narrow each graph to a fourth of the width.

Very nice graphical applet!---I wish there were a desklet like this!

You fixed the "scaling" issue where it remained a static size and aligned to the top of the task bar in Cinnamon! Very nice.

how can I adjust the update frequency? I don't want to strain my system too much. Thank you!

Works fine in the Arch repo's Cinnamon. Pretty easy to customize if you can use a text editor and a little common sense. For instance, the font: ( // Label cr.setFontSize(7); cr.setSourceRGBA(0, 0, 0, 0.5); cr.moveTo(2.5, 7.5); cr.showText(this.provider.getName()); cr.setSourceRGBA(1, 1, 1, 1); cr.moveTo(2, 7); cr.showText(this.provider.getName()); If you wanted a bigger, brighter label on each graph.

Works well, although it would be nice if I could make it a bit bigger. Does not scale if you resize the height of your panel.

After suspending my notebook the graph stays fairly high...

I use it on all Mint machines I have!
