Description:

This applet monitors various temperature, frequency and fan sources in your kicker panel.
Make sure you have enabled a supported kernel module.

Homepage:
http://kima.sourceforge.net

Features:
supported thermal sources:
- the Linux ACPI Thermal Zone driver. The corresponding kernel module is called thermal.
- the thermal sources of the Linux ACPI driver for the IBM ThinkPad laptops. The corresponding kernel module is called ibm-acpi.
- the IBM Hard Drive Active Protection System (HDAPS) driver. The corresponding kernel module is called hdaps.
- the Omnibook Configuration Tools & Patches. The corresponding kernel module is called omnibook.
- the iBook G4 CPU and GPU thermal zones. It may work on other Apple machines as well (please let me know).
- the thermal sensors available through hwmon (I2C, lm_sensors, ...).
- the CPU thermal sensor of the i8k kernel driver for Dell Inspiron and Latitude notebooks.
- the GPU thermal sensors of nvidia-settings (provided by the nVidia GPU card driver tools)
- the termal sensors provided by hddtemp daemon (make sure hddtemp runs on 127.0.0.1 port 7634 before kima starts)

supported frequency sources:
- the Linux kernel /proc/cpuinfo interface
- the Linux kernel cpufreq subsystem

supported fan sources:
- the fan sensors available through hwmon (I2C, lm_sensors, ...).
- the fan sources of the Linux ACPI driver for the IBM ThinkPad laptops. The corresponding kernel module is called ibm-acpi.
- the fan sources of the i8k kernel driver for Dell Inspiron and Latitude notebooks.

misc sources:
- CPU usage source
- uptime source that displays the current system uptime
- battery source that displays the current state of charge of your batteries

misc:
- cpufreqd control module to switch cpufreqd profiles via cpufreqd remote interface

installation:
grab a appropriate package for your distribution or the sources below.

using the source:
run configure
./configure --prefix=$(kde-config --prefix)

build the sources
make

install the applet (with appropriate rights)
su -c 'make install'

finally add the applet to your KDE panel (RMB on kicker).




Changelog:

Kima 0.7.4:
- CPU usage source added
- russian translation added

Kima 0.7.3.2:
- thread wakeups minimized which should lead to a better powertop result
- crash fix: prevent i18n calls from within threads (it seems i18n isn't thread safe)

Kima 0.7.3.1:
- the 0.7.3 tag was inconsistent to the released tar.gz so we decided to release 0.7.3.1
- improvements regarding the dbus error handling
- XNVCtrl support fixed
- small autoconf/automake script improvements

Kima 0.7.3:
- more robust battery source in case of libhal/dbus errors
- since Kima 0.7.2 was already tagged we jump to 0.7.3 the changeog lists the never released 0.7.2 though

Kima 0.7.2:
- battery source added that displays the current state of charge of your batteries through libhal
- nvidia thermal source: optional configure switch added to query libXNVCtrl.a instead of nvidia-settings
- updated admin directory that supports automake 1.10
- swedish, turkish and indonesian translation added (thanks to Oskar Ellström, Uğur Çetin and Donnie S Bhayangkara)
- translation fixes
- processes started by kicker does not exit correctly because of kimas' use of QProcess. KProcess fixes the problem

Kima 0.7.1:
- uptime source added
- initial source scanning parallelized
- spanish translation added
- hungary translation added
- german translation fixes
- hddtemp source bugfix, in case reading from network failed
- preferences bugfix, an enabled source was not displayed on kicker
- cursor fixed if one drags a source and clicks right mouse button
- encoding of the degree sign is now UTF8

Kima 0.7:
- support for moving the sources via drag and drop added
- support for hddtemp daemon added (http://www.guzu.net/linux/hddtemp.php)
- german translation added

 Lots of interrupts

 
 by corinnav on: Nov 2 2007
 
Score 50%

Hi,

Kima is a nice tool, but there's a problem when running it on a laptop.

Usually my laptop has < 20 interrupts/sec in idle mode, 15-18 of them are ACPI interrupts, as can be seen when running Powertop(*). As soon as kima is running, the number of ACPI interrupts goes up to about 100/sec, which wakes up the CPU unnecessarily.

I have kima configured to monitor CPU, GPU and HDD temperature, nothing else.

What is the reason that kima needs so many interrupts to monitor only three values? Is there a chance to lower the number of interrupts/sec to keep the CPU in C3/C4 as much as possible?


Thanks in advance,
Corinna

we changed the way kima is waiting for updated sensor-values with version 0.7.3.2 , so please make sure that you use at least this version or any later one.

Sorry, I should have mentioned that. I am using kima 0.7.4. Nevertheless, the number of additional interrupts is about 80-100/sec.

Another detail I forgot to mention:

The laptop is a Thinkpad T60. All three values are supposed to be taken from /proc/acpi/ibm/thermal. The kima configuration dialog contains the words "This source is provided by the ACPI driver for IBM ThinkPads."

HTH,
Corinna

Hello Corinna,
thanks for investigating. Hundred wakeups per second for three sources sounds pretty much. On my system I get about 5-6 wakeups per source and this still sounds too much. Most source are updated every second - so I would expect one wakeup per second per source. We're actively discussing alternate implementation ideas to optimize the powertop ranking.

Ken

 KDE 4.0 plans

Hello William,

thanks for asking and sorry for the delay. I wasn't able to check all my mails for the last weeks. Making a Kima plasmoid sounds funny but currently I have no concrete plans to do so. Some month ago we briefly discussed a possible KDE4-Kima. I think a port to Qt4 and KDE4 is possible but not the best solution. There are some new exciting frameworks out there (such as Solid and Plasma) that legimitates a rewrite. It really sounds attractive but I'm pretty busy with my day job and other projects. I can't speak for Johannes but I might met him (physically in a few weeks) and we might find some time to hack something. All I can say is that I haven't started developmet on a KDE4-Kima yet and I'm not willing to make empty promises. : )

Regards
Ken

Janet,
There are no news on that topic. I haven't found the time to implement a plasmoid and haven't heard anything from Johannes in a while. I'm quite suprised that there is still interest in that. : ) Have you considered using Petri Damsténs system-monitor applet which is part of KDE4?
Regards
Ken

As a kind of workaround I use Petri Damsténs system-monitor but I'd prefer kima, especially it's the GPU temperature monitor I miss a lot.

Hi Harvest,
it depends on your hardware and the Linux distribution you are using. The features section at http://kima.sourceforge.net/#features lists some kernel modules supported by Kima. If you post some information regarding the distribution and hardware you're using, some users here might be able help.

hi
i have a question: how can i make kima to show temperature for more than one hd? it shows just for /dev/hda.
hddtemp gives this for out so i suppose that problem is not there:
|/dev/hda|SAMSUNG SP0802N|39|C||/dev/hdb|SAMSUNG SP1203N|39|C||/dev/hdd|SAMSUNG SP0802N|48|C|
thanks

Hi darko,
the string you sent seems ok to me. Could you post the output of `netcat 127.0.0.1 7634`? I'll look into the source meanwhile.

darko,
I looked at the code and if the netcat output really matches to the string you sent it should just work. In your case Kima should list three HDDTemp sources. Did you enable them at the preferences?

problem can been solved by changing settings for starting hddtemp daemon, if its settings are changed later kima doesn't react, it cares just for what it finds during its own start-up.
thanks for help and keep with good work. i like kima and i like it as it is now: simple, occupies on panel as less space as possible, configurable, no unneeded graphics etc. maybe it can be just a bit more robust (like this issue with hddtemp)

darko

Hello Blackdog7,

the current SVN version of Kima already has a CPU usage source. The devel section describes how to build Kima from the sources: http://kima.sourceforge.net/#development

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
