Last commit: [1bc3d647] Update Hungarian translation of multicore-sys-monitor@ccadeptic23 applet

Displays in realtime the cpu usage for each core/cpu and overall memory usage.



You must install the gir1.2-gtop-2.0 package to use this applet.

Instructions for upgrading to Cinnamon 3.4

Uninstall the applet from Applet Settings, delete ~/.local/share/cinnamon/applets/multicore-sys-monitor@ccadeptic23 and ~/.cinnamon/configs/multicore-sys-monitor@ccadeptic23. Then reinstall from Applet Settings, so it re-downloads it.

The below instructions are outdated. You can customize the color scheme in the applet's settings app.

How to Configure Colors (in prefs.json)

Edit config file in called prefs.json. Also backup the file, and only do it if you feel comfortable. There are three values that control the color of the applet that all use arrays in the settings format:

[r, b, g, a] r (red): 0-1.0 g (green): 0-1.0 b (blue): 0-1.0 a (alpha): 0-1.0

The three propteries using these values are BackgroundColor, ColorsMem, and ColorsCPUs.

ColorsCPUs requires a little more explanation. It is an array of arrays. The first level is the CPU number that will use that color. For example, if you have two CPUs where the first one is red, and the second one is green, your ColorsCPUs entry would be:

"ColorsCPUs": [[1, 0, 0, 1], [0, 1, 0, 1]]

The ColorsMem property is also a matrix like this, but instead of the CPU number, each of the sub arrays are for different parts of the memory utilization. The first row is the memory that is "used up", meaning it is not available for a program to use. This is the value the system monitor shows as the memory percentage. The second value is buffered memory, the third is cached memory, and the fourth is free memory.

For example, If you wanted the used up memory to be red, the buffered memory to be green, the cached memory to be blue, and the free memory to be white, the ColorsMem property's value would be:

"ColorsMem": [[1, 0, 0, 1], [0, 1, 0, 1], [0, 0, 1, 1], [1, 1, 1, 1]]

If you want free memory to be transparent, make the fourth entry all 0 values.

If you have more CPUs than colors defined in the config file, then the colors will repeat over the remaining CPU cores. This behavior happens with the memory colors as well. Add more arrays if you want to specify them.

Fantastic extension. I just have one question: is it possible to have 2 different color configurations, one for dark theme and another for light theme, so that when I switch Mint's color scheme, the applet also switches its colors automatically?

Thank you for your kind comment. Good feature request! I'll take it into account for a future version.

@claudiux were you able to find solution for disk i/o. and another question if user has two drives how to select drive to monitor
claudiux-1 month ago
Sorry, I'm very busy at the moment and I need to buy a new PC with an NVMe disk; my current PC doesn't accept this type of disk.

I'm working on that now.
angelotux-4 months ago
thanks claudiux now only a nice applet for the cpu governor is missing
claudiux-4 months ago
I'm thinking on it. Is cpupower-gui running well for you? (apt install cpupower-gui)
angelotux-4 months ago
it would be interesting to have the gui in the panel .cpu power has a window that must necessarily remain open we would like the applet type indicator-cpufreq which does not work well it is an abandoned project, or CPU Frequency Applet which does not work crashes and does not change governor

v1.9.4: I added the 'Refresh graphs' option in the contextual menu (right click on this applet). Enjoy it!
claudiux-4 months ago
Also, the maximal refresh rate is now: 3 seconds (3000 ms) as requested by @jondo in
Andrei Miculita
Andrei Miculita-4 months ago
I only have 2 graphs enabled, CPU and Memory. Is it intended that when refreshing, 4 graphs are shown?
Andrei Miculita
Andrei Miculita-4 months ago
Note that they are only shown briefly, the applets then reverts to 2 graphs. But It changes the layout of the panel.
claudiux-4 months ago
I see. I'll try to solve this issue.
angelotux-5 months ago
excellent applet however on linux mint cpu governor cpu applet like this is missing is it possible to have this kind of app?
claudiux-5 months ago
Thank you! Interesting. I don't know if this CPU governor can fit in this applet or if a new applet is needed for it. I'll think about it.

Hi dear users, I am the new maintainer of the multicore-sys-monitor@ccadeptic23 applet. I intend to clean up his code and thus remove the versions for Cinnamon 3.0 and 3.2 (Linux Mint 18 and 18.1, expired since April 2021). Are these versions still used by some of you? Thank you for telling me. Claudiux
claudiux-5 months ago
Version 1.9.2 is here. Now, CPU activity bars can be colored by activity level (five sets of levels: 0-20%, 20-40%, and so on in 20% increments). You can also choose to color these bars automatically, by progressive color from blue to red (blue: close to 0%, red: close to 100%). Enjoy!
claudiux-6 months ago
Version 1.9.0 is here. Now this applet is compatible with fresh install of Linux Mint 21.1.
Alexey Seliverstov
Alexey Seliverstov-7 months ago
I think I managed to fix the issue for a fresh install: As a workaround while this is not merged and deployed, run the following: mkdir -p ~/.cinnamon/configs
claudiux-5 months ago
This issue is solved since v1.9.0. Please update this applet.

Wolfen113-8 months ago
Clicking on the applet with the mouse opens gnome-system-monitor. It's fast and convenient, but what if I changed it to another monitor, for example, mate-system-monitor. Is there a way to make it launch when clicked?
llueveYescampa-8 months ago
not working for me either on a fresh install of mint 21.1
janos-r-8 months ago
I just went from mint 20.3 to 21.1 and this app seams broken. I loved the cpu bars, I dont know if any other app has that. Can please somebody confirm if this is really broken on mint21? Thank you
Graeme-8 months ago
Confirm that it does not work for me either on a fresh install of mint 21.1. Worked fine on 21, or if you upgraded from 21 to 21.1.
csabaz-8 months ago
I confirm, it doesn't work for me either - Mint 21.1 / Cinnamon 5.6.5

Cinnamon 5.0.7 with applet 1.8.91, desktop freezing
dhdurgee-2 years ago
Running Cinnamon 5.0.5 here with your applet 1.8.91 (2021-04-04 13:07:04) I find you are allocating excessive memory overnight while the cinnamon screen saver is running. I have my memory-limit set at 320MB and in less than three hours of screen saver the limit will be reached with your applet enabled. I disabled your applet last night at 21:33 and even now Cinnamon is only using 115Mb here. If you need additional information to correct this problem please let me know. If you have a debug version or test you would like me to run please contact me.

Hi and thanks for this cool applet ! i got a cpu with 32 core ... son i can't see all the visible part of this applet . there is a way to display an average usage of all core CPU and choose this instead of all single 32 core please ?

Prsman-2 years ago
I just installed this and it does not work. I get the files in ~/.local/share/cinnamon/applets/muliticore..., but nothing in ~./cinnamon/configs/multi... In system setup, I get the info icon, nothing else. Running Mint 19.3 Cinnamon. I have the gir1.2-gtop-2.0 package installed. Any Idea?
chennecke-3 years ago
I upgraded to Linux Mint 20 using kernel 5.4.0-40 and after a long time of working without a hitch, the system now shows frequent hard freezes a few minutes after booting where nothing helps except pressing the reset button. I removed the applet and the system has been stable for some hours now. Any ideas? I really like this applet.
allanfr-3 years ago
This latest version 1.8.91 (2020-04-19 21:43:39) has fixed the 'freezing' issue I experienced (reported by scomoletti). The workaround was to logout-user then log back in. Multi-Core System Monitor now functions every time the PC boots, which is a great relief as the applet is VERY useful for keeping an eye on system health. The issue only affected my desktop PC, and 2 laptops also with Multi-Core System Monitor, never exhibited the freezing problem.
janos-r-3 years ago
Please, Im just setting up a new system on an nvme that I had to set to sata AHCI in bios, linux wouldn't recognize it. But now the disk IO doesn't show any graphs... It is enabled and scaling and everything is switched on in the disk settings of this app, but nothing visible. Does anyone know about this behavior? Is it because of the NVMe? Or AHCI? Or because it is one of two disks in the pc? At my work, I have also two but it worked just fine. Thank you for any response.
dolour-3 years ago
Same issue here, doesent show any disc usage for the partitions on my NVMe drive. The mechanical ones work fine tho.

The same is happening here. Disk usage doesn't show any data, does anyone know where to find logs for this applets?
Tomáš Kopal
Tomáš Kopal-3 years ago
Same here. I think it is a libgtop issue (in my case, I am on LVM). See discussion in different applet with the same problem: Libgtop tickets are quite old, so I don't think it will get fixed any time soon. Any possibility to have disk I/O implemented differently in this otherwise great applet?

v1.8.91 Appears to have trouble on Mint 19.3 with Cinnamon 4.4.5. CPU stops updating after a few minutes and I don't think I've noticed MEM update after initial start either. Network and Disk both stop updating and preferences is inaccessible shortly after CPU stops updating. Applet never crashes completely and does launch the system monitor correctly when clicked. I did upgrade from 19.2, and followed the steps to remove configs and cached files.
vtvbreech-3 years ago
I am having this exact issue on 19.3 as well
claudiux-3 years ago
Do you also use one of these applets? netusagemonitor@pdcurtis
claudiux-3 years ago
The latest version of this applet fixes this issue.
vtvbreech-3 years ago
I did not have any of the other listed applets installed but the latest update does indeed seem to be working again. Thanks for looking into things though, appreciated. Thank you jaszhix for quickly implementing a fix.
claudiux-3 years ago
Glad to know this applet does the job again. But it was I, not jaszhix, who fixed the issue. ;-)
vtvbreech-3 years ago
Oh, my sincere apologies for the mistake claudiux. Thank you very much for fixing the issue for us :)
allanfr-3 years ago
I'm having the same issue as posted by scomoletti, even with the latest 1.8.91 (2019-12-29 07:19:23) version. The only way to get Multi-Core System Monitor to work correctly is to Log-out of Mint 19.3 then Log-in again. The app then works fine until a full PC re-boot i.e. starting the PC from scratch causes the applet to 'freeze' after approx 10s. Anything else I could try as this app is really, really useful?
allanfr-3 years ago
CORRECTION: After deleting the applet and re-adding and setting preferences, all is well. Previously I had 'updated' using the Applets utility. It seems a full delete + add is required.
zehm-3 years ago
Thanks so much for this, I couldn't imagine Linux Mint without this thing :)

Just had to restart cinnamon here and after the restart hovering the mouse cursor over the monitor no longer displays the pop-up details. I can still click on it to open the system monitor or right click to pop-up the menu, but hovering isn't working. This is in CobiWindowList and I find that hover works as expected on pinned apps with open windows and other widgets. Let me know if you need more information.

I separate my data from my boot partition, so only the boot(root) partition displays on my system. I assume there is a way to add my data partition, but I see no way to add it in the preferences. I assume that it can be added by editing your prefs.json, but I have no documentation on how to do so. Would the additional disk display in the same area as the root? If so, I would need to change colors to distinguish them from one another. I am in the process of recovering from a hard drive failure. It would have been great if had been an indicator of some sort in my cinnamon panel telling me how healthy my hard drive is. I understand that such data is available from the drive via S.M.A.R.T, but from what I have seen you can drown in details there and it takes understanding of the data to determine the state of the drive. I would like to see a simple colored dot in the disk display colored green if the drive has no problems at all, yellow if there are signs of problems developing and red if the data on the disk is in danger of loss. Any variant on this would be acceptable and would have warned me to buy an new drive and clone the current one prior to failure. I am unaware of any other applet with such a feature and yours appears to be a good fit, so please consider this added function. Dave

Hi Jason, since the last update (I updated recently, don't really it often) current version does not respect height setting. Height of applet never changes, whatever I set it to. I have the same behavior on Mint 18.2 and Arch Linux. Since I set my panel to be a bit smaller that default, this applet is now too big. Thanks.

Jason, I have been using the applet for many years and I appreciate your active involvement on this great applet. The applet is still working perfectly but I have recently noticed it is gradually filling up .xsession-errors on my machine until it reaches the file size limit. dmesg looks clean.

One minor complaint, not even really a complaint, that has driven me bonkers since I first used this applet; the pie chart for memory usage. I like having a short history and can see if there is a misbehaving app (or my own dumbness) has caused a memory usage spike. Could you please either change it or give the option to use a plotted graph like the network and disk monitors use? Thanks and thanks for the great monitoring applet!

Version 1.5, which is currently the latest one, seems not to be compatible with Cinnamon 3.4.1. Is there a way to make it compatible?

The changelog info is from the original author. The newest version is 1.6 which does support 3.4. Please check for an update in System Settings -> Applets.

WammKD's bug report has been reproduced and patched. Please check for an update.

I think your latest upgrade may've broken something (leastwise, on my machine). Trying to add the applet errors out and the error message given in glass.log is "error t=2017-06-04T01:19:19.277Z Mainloop.idle_add_full is not a function". I'm running Linux Mint 18, version 3.0.7. If there's any further info. you might need or tests to run, let me know and I'm more than happy to help.

Great applet. Feature request, I'd love to be able to specify a refresh rate greater than 1 second (1000ms) in the GUI. When running Mint in a VM I don't need to have a very accurate current CPU or memory load.

Cinnamon now at version 3.4.0

And, it's been fixed, apparently. Try removing it from the installed apps, go to online list, refresh, and reinstall. It also appears cinnamon itself was updated, so perhaps that's part of it?

When installing new version, the custom prefs.json file is deleted and replaced by default prefs. It's a bug or a feature?
