How to configure/customize glances/conky and determine which sensor is what?

I originally posted this in the Manjaro forums but it’s not really getting any traction, so I wanted to get another set of eyeballs on it. I’ll link to it here, but I’m just gonna copy the entire post.

======Original Post======

UPDATE: I’m giving up on glances for now. See the 2nd post for conky questions.

UPDATE2: Things are mostly working as I’d like now. See the 6th post for a summary if you want to duplicate this.

UPDATE3: ===WARNING! THE METHODS IN POST 6 CAUSED A MEMORY LEAK DUE TO OVERWRITING FILES ON A TMPFS. YOU MUST EXPLICITLY DELETE THE FILES BEFORE WRITING TO THEM TO AVOID THIS.===
I’ll make a new post with the updated config below.

UPDATE4: See post 14 for “fixed” version. It’s still a work in progress though and specific to my hardware setup. Also I don’t really know what I’m doing, and I’m just learning as I go, so I don’t recommend straight copying anything

Having come over from Windows, I think I’ve been spoiled by HWiNFO64 for monitoring hardware sensors. I’ve tried a few different linux alternatives; including conky, gkrellm, and now glances.

Conky is…alright-ish. However, I can’t seem to run it in a window, and therefore it’s always beneath my other open windows (browser, etc), and I can’t easily min/max/resize/move/alt+tab to it. Also the fact it uses too much CPU resources for my liking (~5% on multiple cores), I’d like to find something better. The good thing about it though is that it can display most things I’d want to monitor (Such as CPU voltage and frequency, and GPU Fan RPM).

GKrellM was just way too unwieldy for me, and takes up so much vertical space to display all of the CPU usage/frequency graphs that it doesn’t even fit on the screen.

Glances is pretty decent so far, but I would love to be able to configure which sensors are displayed and name them properly.


I’ve been to and read through
https://glances.readthedocs.io/en/stable/index.html

and I’ve downloaded and modified the example configuration from
https://raw.githubusercontent.com/nicolargo/glances/master/conf/glances.conf

By default (and with mprime running in the background, because reasons), glances -1 and sensors look like this:

Summary

With a couple tweaks to the config (namely just changing to disable=False and defining a few aliases in the [sensors] section) I’ve gotten this far:

Summary


So the issues are:

  1. Because glances is naming multiple sensors with the same name, my aliases are applying to both the temperatures and fan RPMs.

  2. I can’t figure out what components the jc42 temperature sensors are for. I’m guessing they’re for a couple of the SSDs in the system, but I don’t know for sure, and I don’t know which is which if that’s the case. I’ve tried a couple things such as lspci -v and lshw -class storage but they aren’t giving me any insight.
    The same goes for some of the motherboard temp sensors, but I’m not too worried about those. The 1st one is definitely the CPU temp (already made an alias). The 2nd I don’t know or care (it’s always <30°). 3rd, 5th, and 6th are all the same, and may be the PCH, or the 4th may be the PCH.

  3. The voltage reported by amdgpu is the VDDCI/Aux voltage (don’t care), not Vcore (do care!), and the fan RPM (also plz giv) isn’t reporting correctly. Even if it were, that fan sensor isn’t showing up in glances. <===FAN ISSUE SOLVED

  4. Glances isn’t picking up any of the voltages reported by the it8665 chip (in0 is an abolute must as that’s my CPU voltage).

  5. Neither glances or sensors seem to be able to see the frequency of the GPU or individual CPU cores (or even an overall CPU freq)

With all that said, the obvious questions are:

  1. How can I be specific about which sensor I am making an alias for so I can give them each separate names?
  2. How can I determine exactly what component a sensor is reporting (aside from, say, somehow blasting heat at a specific component and watching which one changes)?
  3. How can I see my voltages and frequencies in glances?
  4. a) Does glances even have the functionality I’m after, or should I abandon it and look for another monitoring tool?
    b) Which one would you suggest?

Doesn’t look like this is gonna get any traction. Maybe glances is just too obscure :man_shrugging: I’m going back to conky I guess, but now I have questions about that. I’m just gonna reply here rather than make a new post. If anyone comes across this I’d still be interested to hear any feedback about glances. Anyway, moving on…

I’ve almost got conky in an acceptably working state, but there are a few things I’d like to add, and I’d like to clean it up to make it more efficient if I could.

Here is my .conkyrc:

Summary

So after some reading I’ve been able to get the gpu core temp and frequency by reading some “files” in /sys/class/drm/card0/device/... and /sys/kernel/debug/dri/0/... but I’m not too comfortable poking around in there tbh.

Questions:

  • Where can I snag the GPU core usage % and GPU core voltage? (It’s an AMD R9 290 and I’m using the amdgpu driver)
  • Is it possible to read the “SVI2 TFN” voltage for the CPU? The one that the motherboard sensor (that I’m reading now) isn’t right because it doesn’t account for vdroop.

The other thing is, as you can see, it calls bash scripts for each temperature, voltage, etc. and most of those scripts call sensors individually.
What I’d like to do is call sensors one time per refresh interval, store the entire output in memory temporarily, and then parse that output into the needed variables.
Problem is I can’t seem to figure out how to even declare a variable in conky.

Is this possible?

EDIT: Oh right I almost forgot…what the heck is going on with my network downspeed graph? It puts the number in black inside of the graph, and the total below always reads 0B. wth? :dizzy_face:

To work around not knowing how to store variables in conky; I’ve instead created a ramdisk, and reworked all my bash scripts into a single script, to store the variables in various text files on said disk. I’m trying to run the script as a systemd service on a timer, but the time intervals are completely random.

Here is my script (which works fine when it’s actually invoked):

The service is only running every few seconds to a minute at random intervals. For some reason it seems to prefer to run at every Xhr:Xmin:42 seconds plus some other random times thrown in.

What the hell am I doing wrong?

Here is the gkrellm theme I still use on an old box (red and orange on clear background):

This conky theme is a bit outdated, I’ve since updated it so I’ll push an update later tonight to github after I’m home from work, but perhaps it will help:

The conky config is set up for a ryzen 2700, but I’ve since fixed some graphical glitches by changing some values around. I also run a vega 56 so the reporting is based on radeontop.

Hope this helps a bit.

Thanks for the links. I’ve almost got things the way I want. I thought the gpu_busy_percent was broken because every time I checked it it was reading 0, but the other night I watched it with -n 0.1 and played some video and ran Unigine Valley and it is actually working. Also found where I can snag the actual VRAM freq.

So the only thing I need is to get my GPU Vcore, and preferably my “SVI2 TFN” voltage (the one reported by the CPU as it accounts for vdroop, as opposed to the one reported by the motherboard’s it8665 chip, which is what the VRM is outputting).

I’m thinking maybe the reason I can’t get gpu vcore is because I’m running a modified VBIOS, so I’ll throw the stock one back on at some point and see if I can snag it with that. If so, then I guess I’ll have to decide if I want to run the stock BIOS or be able to monitor gpu vcore.

EDIT:
This is what I’m able to see in /sys/devices for GPU stuff. Not sure where I would find the CPU’s sensors though:

EDIT2: Oh right and the other issue is what am I doing wrong with my systemd timer/service that it won’t refresh every 3 secs?

EDIT:
===WARNING! DOING THIS MAY CAUSE A MEMORY LEAK DUE TO OVERWRITING FILES ON A TMPFS. MAKE SURE YOU EXPLICITLY DELETE ANY FILES ON THE TMPFS BEFORE WRITING TO THEM.===
Also kernel 5.6 allows seeing the Vcore reported by the CPU itself, as well as Icore, VSoC, and ISoC. I will post updated versions below.

Most of my issues are resolved, so I’m making a possibly final post here summarizing what I did, in case any other newbies come across this that are in the same boat as I was last week.
I won’t close it though, in case anyone wants to add info about glances or amdgpu, or has suggestions on how to make this more efficient, etc., as there are still some minor issues.

A lot of what I wrote in earlier posts will be duplicated here, so it’s all in one place, and no one will have to read all of my verbal diarrhea from the entire thread.

Okay, so…
First off, I added an entry to my fstab, so I have a place to store my sensors output in memory for parsing, and therefore don’t have to call sensors multiple times per refresh interval:

# /mnt/sensordata
tmpfs /mnt/sensordata tmpfs rw,size=1M,noexec,nodev,nosuid,uid=user1,mode=1700 0 0

Next, I’ve written a bash script to snag and store the data on the ramdisk:

===WARNING! DO NOT DO THIS OR YOU MAY CAUSE A MEMORY LEAK===

To automate starting the script and conky at boot, I’ve created a couple systemd services and associated timers. These units are placed in /etc/systemd/system. The timer has to have the same file name as the service (but with the “.timer” extension instead), in order for it to find the service file automatically, without specifically pointing to it.

First, the one that calls the sensordata.sh script. The reason this was not working earlier is because I didn’t RTFM and had to add AccuracySec= to the [Timer] section. Otherwise, the default accuracy of timers is only 1 minute intervals. @vlycop gave me the solution here (Thanks again dude!):

Summary

Need help with a systemd timer

I played around with different OnUnitActiveSec= and AccuracySec= values until it would run without throwing Start request repeated too quickly and start-limit-hit errors. I wanted to get the interval down to 2 seconds but that wasn’t working out, so I’m sticking with 3. YMMV. One caveat is if you set AccuracySec= too low it can mess with your idle efficiency as your CPU has to wake too often (according to what I read anyway).

systemd unit files here:

Summary

Contents of store-temporary-sensor-data.timer:

[Unit]
Description=Timer for refreshing stored sensor data

[Timer]
OnBootSec=16sec
OnUnitActiveSec=2990ms
AccuracySec=10ms

[Install]
WantedBy=timers.target

Contents of store-temporary-sensor-data.service:

[Unit]
Description=Get and store temporary sensor values

[Service]
Type=simple
ExecStart=/bin/bash /home/user1/.sensordata.sh
RemainAfterExit=false

[Install]
WantedBy=multi-user.target

Contents of conky.timer:

[Unit]
Description=Conky auto-start timer

[Timer]
OnBootSec=20sec

[Install]
WantedBy=timers.target

Contents of conky.service:

[Unit]
Description=Conky
Wants=store-temporary-sensor-data

[Service]
User=user1
Type=simple
ExecStart=/usr/bin/conky --display=:0
RemainAfterExit=false

[Install]
WantedBy=multi-user.target

The --display=:0 argument was necessary, otherwise conky would throw a can't open display error. If you get this error, and need to find out the right number to punch in there, you can run echo $DISPLAY in the terminal.

User=user1 is necessary so the service doesn’t run as root, and can find your .conkyrc

So that’s it! Hopefully this wall of text helps someone else down the road, or they found it informative at the very least. That’ll make be feel better about beating my head against a wall on this for days :laughing:

A couple “issues” I’m still having:

  • My network downspeed total isn’t displaying correctly
  • I can’t find where to snag my GPU core voltage. /sys/class/drm/card1/device/hwmon/hwmon?/in0_input is my VDDCI/AUX (memory controller) voltage, and in1_input does not exist. This might be due to the fact that I’m running a modified VBIOS with a tweaked init regulator section in the VOI table, or it might just not be supported on Hawaii, not sure…I’ll have to test with the stock BIOS later maybe.
  • Not sure how efficient this is. If anyone has any other methods, or tips to clean up the script or config, I’ll take 'em. There’s a lot of cat’s , greps, and echoes flying around and I’m guessing I could compress it into an awk or sed one-liner if I had a clue what I was doing. Note that I tried to use head/tail in the conky config instead of exec "cat /mnt/sensordata/..." to grab the numbers out of the .txt files, but that was causing it to print extra newline chars. Maybe there’s a way to store the data in the .txt file without a newline char but I haven’t looked into it yet.

love that you summarized all of this, might help me out a bit on my next conky rabbit hole

Like I say, I hope someone finds it useful. It’ll probably me more useful for you if you have on old AMD gpu :stuck_out_tongue:

Also, small update…the reason I couldn’t see the “SVI2 TFN” voltage (the one reported by the CPU itself) is apparently because that just wasn’t a thing. As of kernel 5.6, the k10temp sensor can see that stuff now. The manjaro stable branch just got 5.6rc3 last night so now that’s woorking. Hooray!

And I should probably add a screenshot at this point so here it is:

looks really clean!

Crikey, next you’ll be lobbying for Dtrace to be integrated into Linux…

I know you’re probably joking, but if it is gonna let me see the basic info I need to overclock and make sure I’m not overheating or overvolting then yeah sure

Yeah, you are right, was just kidding.
Good stuff on the Conkey though

Aww and I just got done sharpening up my pitchfork. Back in the closet it goes…

So (over)writing to files on the tmpfs in the manner of command > /mytmpfs/file was causing a memory leak. Apparently files on a tmpfs need to be explicitly deleted before being written to. Who knew? :man_shrugging:
I’ve updated the script to do a rm -f /mytmpfs/file before writing to it.

I thought I was pretty much done with this but seems it’s very much still a work in progress.
Some stuff is just being done within the .conkyrc now, and the timer is handled by the script itself instead of systemd so it can more easily be reduced/played around with.
Anyway, I just wanted to get the info about the memory leak out there, so here the current “fixed” state of things (assuming something else isn’t broken):
