More than one sensor panel

Recommended Posts

I understand from reading some of the threads that the idea of having more than one active sensor panel was considered in the past, but was abandoned due to the complexity of coding which would be necessary to have it implemented.

How about the ability to run more than one instance of AIDA64?  I have tried all the tricks available in Windows 10 and known to me, inclusive of creating additional user accounts and trying to spin up separate instances of AIDA64 residing in their own, unique folders via Windows' "run as a different user" facility, but came up short.  It seems that AIDA64 insists on having only one instance running, no matter what I try.

Is there a trick that I am not aware of to make something like this happen?  I would love to have two sensor panels (one dedicated to general monitoring, and another one of significance to overclocking activities) with the ability to display them on different local monitors, and with the ability to turn them on-and-off at will.  I.E.: off-off, on-off, off-on and on-on for panels 1 and 2.

I think I could accomplish something similar by using virtual machine(s), but would prefer to avoid VMs for the sake of simplicity.

Is this possible?

Running more than one instance would be possible, but you wouldn't be able to use the kernel driver (and so all the low-level features of AIDA64) in the secondary, tertiary (etc) instances since AIDA64 kernel driver can only be used by the process that loaded it first.  So even if we enabled the use of multiple instances, it wouldn't be useful for your purposes I'm afraid.

I know it's not the best advice, and also it would cost you money, but picking one (or even more than one) external LCD screen would enable you to use the LCD facility of AIDA64 and effectively double or triple the amount of "SensorPanels" you can use at any given time.  For example, if you picked up a BeadaPanel, you could place your secondary readings on it using the same layout editor that you use for SensorPanel.

Thanks.

Is it possible to have AIDA64 broadcast on more than one HTTP port?

No, only one, via the RemoteSensor module.  For a more advanced solution you need to develop your own HTTP server and process the readings exported by the External Application module of AIDA64.

That's an idea.  Thanks!
