View Full Version : [all variants] Conky + diskiograph with 'disk by id' or 'uuid'??

January 2nd, 2011, 11:16 AM
Hey all

Ive been setting up conky (it so customizable, its great!!) and id like to show a 'disk io graph' for my hdd's with the diskiograph option. Everything works fine if I use the line:

${diskiograph /dev/sd* 25, 000000 7f8ed3}everything fine. If I use:

${diskiograph /dev/disk/by-id/scsi-SATA* 25, 000000 7f8ed3}nothing displays in the graph box.

Just wondering if theres any way for conky to use 'disk by id' or 'uuid' so I dont have to use /dev/sd* as the naming isnt persistent.

Any help is greatly appreciated!
