Simple System Monitor for Ubuntu?

Postby bcblues » Mon Mar 05, 2012 3:16 am

Thanks to the help of the good folks on this forum I have my new dedicated ubuntu box up and folding away!

Asrock Extreme 3 Gen 3 (bios 1.30)
2700k
Noctua NH-D14
2x4gb ram G.SKILL F3-17000CL11D-8GBSR (installed in A2 and B2)
CORSAIR HX750
SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ
Ubuntu 11.10 64 bit
FAH 6.24 64 bit

Stock everything, I was getting about 23,000 ppd folding smp at about 52c.

OC the cpu to 4.5 via bios and now I am getting 35,000 ppd folding smp at about 60c.

BUT, I have not figured out a good way to monitor my cpu on ubuntu. I have xsensors, which works fine for temps, but I was looking for a good freq monitor and after a fairly lengthy interwebs search, I came up with few candidates, the best of which appears to me to be conky. I installed it and it reads my cpu freq as 3500, which I am pretty sure is incorrect.

Does anybody have conky reading cpu freq correctly, or is there a better alternative?

I finally settled on i7z to (correctly) monitor my cpu freq. I could never get conky configured to correctly read cpu freq. It would always just read the STOCK freq.

BTW, now running stable @ 4.8 Ghz and folding away!

BTW, I use xsensors to monitor my temps. Works well in Ubuntu 11.10.

Using 10.10 Ubuntu, I settled on i7z at the suggestion of some teammates, been working great thus far.
