Is there any program in EndeavourOS to monitor my system and my hardware, temperatures, % usage, etc?

Hi friends.

I have EndeavourOS with KDE, my pc is quite slow because it’s old, I need to know if I need swap or not, and I want to monitor the % of cpg, gpu, etc.

I think my pc is 100% when i run some games but i need to check it.

Is there any program to monitor the hardware from my EOS?

And something to also see the temperature of my cpu/gpu?

And if there is any program, which is the best or the one that has given you the best result/precision?

I have the KDE desktop, but I think this desktop doesn’t come with any software to monitor the system, I’m new to Linux so maybe it does, but I don’t know.

My pc is an i-5 3470, 1050 ti, 8gb ram

Thanks in advance.

I think KDE comes with ksysguard and for your GPU you could use nvidia-smi or nvidia-settings. Not ideal to use two programs though.

This one maybe:


you can use these in a bash file or as individual alias’s

CPU_TEMP=`inxi -s | grep "System" | awk {'print $3, $4, $5'}`
GPU_TEMP=`inxi -s | grep "System" | awk {'print $8, $9, $10, $11, $12'}`

btop is nice, expecially if you have a drop-down terminal window.

I found this widget on my KDE, I like it, it looks nice, but unfortunately, as you can see, the nvidia GPU sensor doesn’t work and it keeps stuck at 0%.

Thanks my friend. Do you know if this program allows you to see the temperature of nvidia GPUs?

Unfortunately I’m trying to find something that can measure CPU/GPU/RAM.

My KDE widget doesn’t measure my GPU temperature correctly.

Bash file? Sorry my friend, I’m new to Linux.

I shouldn’t put those commands in the Terminal right?

Have a look at:


watch -n 2 sensors

For Nvidia:

watch -n 2 nvidia-smi

watch -n 2 makes sure that the readings are refreshed each 2 seconds


Take a look at bottom available in official Arch repository.
In my case it was the only program showing GPU temperature (among the others) right out of the box without any additional configuration


the commands can be run into a termial like this

In this example I used the command from the first line of code i gave you

Hi friend. I don’t have ksysguard on my KDE, at least it doesn’t show up in the program browser.

But I have found a secret program that is in EndeavourOS, it is called Glances, I found it in a youtube video tutorial.

It doesn’t show up in the list of programs, but if I type the name in terminal, it does show up. Unfortunately it does not measure the temperature of the GPU, I would like a program that has all the temperatures.

About nvidia-smi, it doesn’t seem to work correctly? I see the values at 0% and the temperature is always 43ºC.

nvidia-settings I don’t know if it uses the same sensor, but at least it updates more seconds.

I’m going to try to find a program that can collect all the sensors at the same time, or something like that. Although at least now I can see all the temperatures in nvidia-settings/nvidia-smi and glances.

The KDE widget looks simple and nice, unfortunately it doesn’t detect the nvidia sensor correctly. Also, I don’t know if a system monitor consumes more from the terminal or with a graphical interface.

Thanks again friend!

Thanks friend, now it updates every 2s!

I’ll read that Arch article when I have time, thanks for the guide!

Thanks friend, I’ll check it out!

Thanks friend, it works! It doesn’t update every second though, but at least that way I can see both temperatures in one place.

By the way, do you know if it consumes more resources to see the temperatures in the terminal, or with an external graphical interface like the nvidia-settings?

[mylinux@mylinux ~]$ inxi -s | grep "System" | awk {'print $3, $4, $5'}
cpu: 45.0 C
[mylinux@mylinux ~]$ inxi -s | grep "System" | awk {'print $8, $9, $10, $11, $12'}
gpu: nvidia temp: 44 C
[mylinux@mylinux ~]$ 

Oh, this one also has a GPU sensor. It looks very nice, although I don’t know if the sensors from the terminal consume less resources. But I liked this one.

Thanks my friend. There are so many programs, I still don’t know which one I should stick with.

The command line does not need x system so its less taxing on the resources

Unfortunately I don’t have nvidia, so I can’t try it.
