[Release] LH_Monitoring (v1.05)

    LH_Monitoring
    Latest Version: v1.05

    For new users:
    LH_Monitoring is a plugin that will connect to a running instance of one of nine (ok, eight and a half) different 3rd party monitoring applications and allow you to display the sensor data they monitor on LCDHost in a number of forms, such as simple text, plot graphs over time, display a value as a bar or as a speedometer-style dial.

    You also can display status icons based on various thresholds - 70°C worrying*? Have a warning image appear when the temperature reaches that level; 80°C really scary*? Lets have a bright red icon then. Likewise you can set thresholds for fan speeds, voltages (although I've never really understood the interest in that one), or anything else your favourite monitoring application uses. Use whatever icons you like and define 5 different statuses (using four threshold levels). See the included icon sets which are based on the excellent icon set "silk" from famfamfam.com.

    It can monitor:

    e.g.:
    Here you can see my current layout, including
    an array of temperatures and the speed of my
    main fan.
    And here's a (messy) sample using all eight
    (because Everest doesn't really count as being
    separate from Aida64) applications.

    For old users:
    After a month of hard coding I'm happy to announce that the replacement for the current monitoring plugins is (almost) ready. Shipping soon with LCDHost Alpha 14, this plugin is a major step up from the existing monitoring plugins.

    Here's the full list of changes:

    General
    • merge into one plugin
    • Fix graph behaviour when app is not running
    • Bars
    • Dials
    • Support for ATI Tray Tools
    • N/A image to status image
    • Only show "Round" option on non-int values
    • changing font colours for status text objects
    • changing font bg colours for status text objects
    • investigate importance of updateScale in Graph object
    • all tools disable sensor editing when app not running
    • correct memory file mappings from create to open
    • change to static_cast instead of C-style casts
    • change data objects to QObjects & use parent-child r/ships
    • Add help details
    Aida64
    • make all options on the graph available
    • add lowest, highest & avg values for multiple cores etc
    • add group graphs
    • add group dials
    • add group bars
    • add extra groups (e.g. Cpu # / Core #)
    Fraps
    • Expose Game Name
    • Convert to standard monitoring plugin
    • Game dependant status images (in other words, using fraps you can have a different background image for each game you run, if you so desire)
    GPU-Z
    • Change Sensor index to type & drop down.
    Afterburner
    • Change Sensor index to type & drop down.
    • add lowest, highest & avg values for multiple cards
    • add group graphs
    • add group dials
    • add group bars
    RivaTuner
    • Change Sensor index to type & drop down.
    • add lowest, highest & avg values for multiple cores
    • add group graphs
    • add group dials
    • add group bars
    CoreTemp
    • change from index to string list
    • add lowest, highest & avg values for multiple cores
    • added core count & cpu count
    • add group graphs
    • add group dials
    • add group bars
    SpeedFan
    • change from index to string list
    • add lowest, highest & avg values for multiple cores
    • add group graphs
    • add group dials
    • add group bars

    Download

    *I just pulled these numbers out of the air, and are by no means recommendations for your specific processor. I suggest you seek out the TjMax value for your processor (you can, ironically, get this easily from CoreTemp ;-p) and base your thresholds off that. Our mutual friend, Mr Google, should help you establish learn more about  TjMax. Alternatively if you've been monitoring your temperatures etc for a while you probably know what's normal for your system.

    Note that the old separate monitoring plugins, LH_SpeedFan, LH_CoreTemp, etc etc will be discontinued and will not be compatible with A13.[/list]

    Hmmm, playing with the fraps plugin, is there a special format to assign an image to a game? (in the advanced editing tab...)
    EDIT: ok got it, the same as weather and status icones....

    Yes. As you've now worked out (I assume) it's <game name>[tab]<image path relative to the layout>. However the "game name" bit is determined by fraps - it's usually the exe name, but no guarantees. For example for Starcraft2 it's SC2 but for windows it's DWM.

    I think the best way is to add items via the drop down (non-advanced) method - run the game and then quit and the fraps condition image will "learn" the correct name. Select it from the drop down and add the image. The advanced thing is good for deleting undesired entries.

    Yep, great plugin...! I'm maybe going to make a "gaming" layout, as the G19 is for gamers, it might interest some.... ;), in that way, i was wondering, as UT2004 has a G15 plugin, would you be able to get those data? (for a better display on a G19, a sweet layout....)

    Release Notes:

    Updated to 1.01:
    • Fixed values that are meant to be integers but which (for some reason) are not. Such numbers will be forcibly rounded.

    This release only fixes a small bug as reported here. There is no need to upgrade if you are not experiencing this issue.

    Hello Triscopic,

    Great work with the plugins :)

    Would it be possible to add RealTemp to LH_Monioring? The issue is SpeedFan and CoreTemp simply do not update the products often enough. For example I upgraded to Sandy Bridge a few days ago and to my knowledge SpeedFan and CoreTemp do not support it yet properly. Only one that does that I know of is RealTemp 3.67 which is what I am using.


    Thanks.

    Sadly, no, it's not possible, otherwise I would have done so already. I looked into supporting RealTemp when I was starting LH_Monintoring, but RealTemp fundamentally doesn't support sharing it's data with other applications like many other products do (e.g. CoreTemp & SpeedFan).

    I posted a question about that on the RealTemp forums and UncleWebb (the author of RealTemp) responded saying he had no plans to add it in. He even went so far as to recommend CoreTemp as a substitute.

    EDIT: You could try Aida64 - it probably supports Sandy Bridge* and does work with LH_Monitoring. It's a commercial product though. All that said, it has a month trial which might be enough time for something else to catch up.
