SYSTEM MONITOR with CONKY


#1

For those, want to maximize the strength of all cpu cores,
This is a good way for monitor.

1. Install conky

sudo apt install -y conky cpufrequtils

2 Config it always running in background .conkyrc

$ export NETWORK_INTERFACE=wlan0
$ cat << EOF > ~/.conkyrc
conky.config = {
use_spacer = ‘left’,
pad_percents = 3,
background = false,
double_buffer = true,
font = ‘DejaVu Sans Mono:size=10’,
use_xft = true,
alignment = ‘top_right’,
gap_x = 10,
gap_y = 40,
own_window_argb_visual = true,
own_window_argb_value = 0,
own_window_type = ‘normal’,
own_window_hints = ‘undecorated,below,skip_taskbar,skip_pager,sticky’,
own_window = true,
update_interval = 1.5,
}
conky.text = [[
