    System monitors.

    Hi all,
    I come to ask for some assistance regarding system monitoring software.
    I currently use htop I am looking at video editing with Davinci Resolve in the future but been using Kdenlive on Ubuntu, with Resolve now available for Linux could see myself using Linux more rather than using the other option on Windows.

    I would like to monitor all aspects of the hardware usage such as disc write and read and GPU/ CPU usage in real time, network is meaningless at this time. Any recommendations.

    Thanks in advance,
    hairy.

    Thread moved to Ubuntu, Linux and OS Chat a more appropriate sub-forum.

    Glances might give some additional options.
    Code:
    sudo apt install glances
    Code:
    glances

    You haven't said which desktop environment you're using. KDE has a bunch of plasmoids and Gnome has a bunch of widgets for displaying system info on the desktop or panel.

    I use conky for its customisability and information density.

    Sorry, the desktop is Gnome.
    Glances looks good so far, just no GPU but great disc info, just what I was after so far.
    I will checkout conky tomorrow.
    Thanks everone.
