635 LED's

Just a note on my LED config & the CPU usage.

Instead of using 2 LEDs for the CPU, I have used one LED for each of the Hyperthread execution units. It would also work pretty well I think with the new Dual Core chips aswell. It's also a pretty good indicator of CPU load distribution.

I run BOINC in the background all the time and it is neat watching the bottom 2 LEDs drift back and forward between green and orange as the BOINC worker process drifts between the HT exec units.

ok, just a few questions...

ive setup the LED's in this order (basically cut and paste from what ive seen)

(lcd_635.ini)

led01_order=0
led01_id_value=
led01_value_max=100
led01_value_min=0

led02_order=5
led02_id_value=1962220590
led02_value_max=100
led02_value_min=0

led03_order=5
led03_id_value=3145422136
led03_value_max=100
led03_value_min=0

led04_order=5
led04_id_value=3980309408
led04_value_max=100
led04_value_min=0

(cc2_perfmon.ini)

[perf00]
id=3980309408
full_name="\\Process(_Total)\\% User Time"
precision=0
multiplier=1

[perf01]
id=3945921292
full_name="\\System\\Processor Queue Length"
precision=0
multiplier=1


[perf02]
id=3145422136
full_name="\\LogicalDisk(C:)\\% Disk Time"
precision=0
multiplier=1

[perf03]
id=1962220590
full_name="\\LogicalDisk(D:)\\% Disk Time"
precision=0
multiplier=1


the bottom LED is showing the status of the CPU load.
The middle bottom LED is showing HDD activity of C:\
The Middle top LED is showing HDD activity of D:\
and the top one is doing nothing atm.

my problem is that im getting errors in the LCD screens when i have the settings in perfmon.ini...

its a cut and past job because im new to this, so what am i doing wrong?

and also, what are some suggestions of what i can do with the last top LED.

Thanks
Matthew.

Question: where did the cc2_perfmon.ini values come from?

Just to review, you need to add 3 screens that will produce the required id #'s in the cc2_perfmon.ini file. Let CC2 produce the id #'s: no copy/paste in this file.

If you did add screens to obtain these values, I am not sure what is happening.

So, I'll just ask the above question, first. Then we can go from there.

i basically copied and pasted from a file (forgot which one) which looked at hdd activity.

so your saying that i need to import the screen for HDD activity and then take the values from there after their created automatically?

great... worked a treat :)

also, im still pondering what i should use the top LED for?

also, are there any screens for network activity? because i couldnt find any

and im guessing CC2 is still in development... so when will there be a GUI for creating screens? because that would be really handy.

Its getting close to being ready for public release.
A few more screen-editor plugins to write and some testing to do first.
