I'll add it to my TODO list, shouldn't be too hard to get this into 2.3.3.

That would probably be a tough thing as gkrellm is based on Gtk+ and porting it to Qt/KDE basically means rewriting it. The only thing I can imagine right now (as an ex-KDE user/developer) would be to embed the whole gkrellm window in a small plasmoid-app that allows embedding any borderless application-window. I don't really know anything about newer KDE4 APIs though.

Ok great, tnx for the info! I won't spend more time trying to edit that 5 seconds. :) I'll wait for a newer version to have it user editable.

And hopefully one version to have gkrellm as a plasmoid in KDE4. I am trying to learn how to port an application to plasma, but I believe it might not be as easy as I thought for gkrellm.

It's hardcoded right now and probably should be made configurable similar to the interval when checking disk-space.

Change update interval of sensors
Hi,

3 years after the last comment, I am not expecting an answer, but since this project is still maintained (and hopefully will forever since it beats all other monitors on the market :)), I'm giving a try. :)

I know the sensors (temps, fans, voltages) update every 5 seconds. How can I change this to a different value? I've googled around for hours and never found anyone trying to do such a thing.

tnx!

Great little app
Great little tool for my desktop. installed it on a Redhat enterprise 3 with no issue whatsoever.

I was using kbmon before which doesn't seem to be supported on later version of redhat with newer QT libraries.

gkrellm was litterally brainless to install . Thanks to the author.

AFACT the freebsd port has a daemon that runs in the background for such a thing

I used to get along with a bunch of little applets, but really treasure this little app! This is a must!

good job!
what an awesome little program. I had no clue how I ever made it without it in the corner of my desktop.

Client-server GkRellm?
To make monitoring of several remote hosts easier
on network traffic, would it be possible to split
Gkrellm into a client and server? At the moment, if
you want to monitor a remote host, you have to
export the display to your workstation and run
Gkrellm on the remote host. This generates a lot of
X-Window traffic.

If the Gkrellm monitoring process (which gathers the
information to display) could run on the remote node
as a daemon and just send the raw data to the
display node, this would be more efficient in terms of
network traffic.

Finally, congrats on one of the best monitoring apps
I've seen!.

Cheers.
Adrian.
