[Release] LH_DriveStats
« on: 2011-11-09 23:21:25 »
LH_DriveStats
Latest Version: v1.02

LH_DriveStats is a plugin that allows LCDHost to display information about the computer's disk drives. You can select any drive and display any of the following details:

  • Bytes Read / Bytes Written
  • Read Count / Write Count
  • Read Time / Write Time / Idle Time
  • Queue Depth
  • Free Disk Space / Used Disk Space / Total Disk Space

These can be displayed in any of the standard formats: text, bar, dial, graph, status image... and pie chart. Pie charts are only available for drive space; this is the first outing for this new rendering type, so please report any bugs in the pie chart behaviour.

Download LH_DriveStats v1.02

Works perfectly for me on the three PCs I tested it on. Any chance you can be more specific in your complaint?

And... are you sure you've set the min/max values on the bars/dials correctly? They don't "adapt" like the graph does (obviously) so you need to set a manual maximum for them or they just go full-empty-full-empty

Ah ok. I didn't test the HDD usage stats on anything other than the pie. I'll look at it tonight.

I've updated it to v1.01 via the auto-update now.

That should fix the problems you were having before Novax. Nice layout there btw.

Mixi: Not sure. I intend to look into it later however.

Damn.

I've done a quick retest @ on my work pc, and it looks like this to me:

Text: Works perfectly
Graph: Works perfectly
Bar: Works perfectly
Dial: Works perfectly
Pie: Doesn't work in 1.01 (argh!)

Does that match your experience?

Ok, updated to 1.02 to fix the pie chart bug.

Hope that does it!

Great work, as always.

I have a request tough. The Bar control has a 'Units' parameter for the 'Bytes Read/written' values, while the 'Text' control does not, the latter is automatically adapting the units used to the current speed. While of course this is a nice feature to have, not giving people the opportunity to switch off this automatic choice of units has two "problems":

1. If we uncheck the 'Append Units' checkbox to save screen space we don't know whether we are seeing bytes, KB, MB, GB or TB (yes, mine are that fast :) ).

2. I personally do not care about bytes and KBytes, I'd rather round them down to '0', and only see the current activity in MB/sec.

Also, the 'Bytes Read' and 'Bytes Written' value names may be misleading. At first I assumed it was a cumulative value (like the one Process Explorer is displaying). Maybe it would be better to call them something like 'data rate', 'reads/sec', etc.?

Thanks.
