PiGlow system monitor

Tue Aug 20, 2013 11:16 pm

Hi all,

It seems as though there's not yet much software around that interfaces to the PiGlow LED add-on board (http://shop.pimoroni.com/products/piglow )

Thought I would share the program that I am running on mine: a system monitor that displays CPU usage, SoC temperature and network usage as bar graphs on the three 'legs' of the PiGlow: https://github.com/chrisgjohnson/piglow-sysmon

Comments / suggestions / patches gratefully accepted.

Since metrics that people are interested in vary depending on project, you should take in three arguments which select the metric reported by each of the "legs".
Some metrics I would be interested in: memory usage, SD storage usage, uptime as a percentage of a given length of time.
