gnome-shell-extension-vitals

Vitals is a GNOME extension for displaying your computer's temperature, voltage, fan speed, memory usage, processor load, system resources, network speed and storage stats in your GNOME Shell's menu bar. This is a one stop shop to monitor all of your vital sensors. Vitals uses asynchronous polling to provide a smooth user experience.

Installation

1) Install these packages

Ubuntu

apt install gir1.2-gtop-2.0 lm-sensors

Fedora

yum install libgtop2-devel lm_sensors

Arch/Manjaro

sudo pacman -Syu libgtop lm_sensors

2a) Download from GitHub (either perform step 2a or 2b, not both)

mkdir -p ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions
git clone https://github.com/corecoding/Vitals.git ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions/Vitals@CoreCoding.com

2b) Download from extensions.gnome.org

https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/1460/vitals/

3) Activate after installation

Restart GNOME Shell (Alt+F2, r, Enter) and enable the extension through gnome-tweak-tool.

Credits

Vitals was originally forked from gnome-shell-extension-freon. I was having trouble finding an up to date, resource friendly and fully featured system monitoring tool. My biggest pet peeve was random system delays becaus of I/O blocking polls, and thus, the idea for Vitals was born!

Icons

  • (voltage|fan)-symbolic.svg - inherited from Freon project.
  • (system|storage)-symbolic.svg - from Pop! OS theme.
  • temperature-symbolic.svg - iconnice studio.
  • (cpu|memory)-symbolic.svg - DinosoftLabs.
  • network*.svg - Yannick Lung.
  • Health icon - Dod Cosmin.
