View Full Version : [SOLVED] Is there a KDE applet for I/O monitoring similar to Gnome's disk I/O applet?

System is sometimes non-responsive and I'd like to see whether it's doing I/O.

There are a number of system monitoring widgets. Right click on the desktop and unlock widgets if they are locked. Select add new widgets and select system monitoring to see the options.

Alternatively you can use something like conky. There is a couple of good threads on that if yo search for conky.

I know that I can add widgets to screen or panel. Just not sure which of them shows IO. Hoping that clarifies my question.

PS: I've reviewed conky and it's not nearly a convenient applet which shows I/O under gnome.

Sorry, haven't tried them all so can't give a better answer.

Also KDE in Fedora comes with few widgets you can get more by installing kdeplasma-addons

You could install iotop and run that, it's not specific to KDE but rather a terminal utility

So I guess the short answer is: no, there is no IO monitoring applet in KDE. Solved.
