Using multiple instances, and gauge resources?

Recommended Posts

hi all, newbie here! this is my first post so i hope it has landed in the correct place..  be gentle!

i have installed the 'simple' version of a64, is it possible to run multiple instances of the sensor panel? i have the sensor panel running in a 5 inch screen located inside my case but have a room change planned which will put the case high on a shelf out of my eye sight so i would like a second display for stats placed under my main monitor. i plan to use a larger screen say a 10.1 'ultrawide (if thats the correct term) as i like the extra real-estate. what are my options?
on a similar topic, is it possible to create an 'unpublished' senor panel before removing the currently used panel? or would i have to save the current panel to file or something then start a new panel?

also can anyone point me to gauge resources, ie pre made gauges? or an easy to understand tutorial for how to diy them? total novice here, but can follow an idiots guide!

i have included the final evolution of my first attempt using the provided gauges etc, it took me ages to get rid of the green dials.. i finally gave up trying to figure it out in a64 so i just changed the hue on the 5inch monitor lol. really hoping to learn the skills to create something like i have seen on here.. some really nice work on the share your panel thread, some of those must have taken ages!!! impressive. 

any advice greatly received, but remember your talking to an a64 absolute novice!!
Thanks folks.

1) Multiple SensorPanel instances aren't supported.  If you're adament about that project, then there're 2 options: you can either get two external displays like the ones made by BeadaPanel, and then you can use the AIDA64 LCD module that supports multiple devices. Or, you can get one external display where you can use the LCD module; and you can have a display that you connect as a monitor where you can use the SensorPanel.  In other words: multiple layouts can be achieved along with the LCD module that supports multiple devices; or by combining the LCD and SensorPanel modules with a mixed hardware setup.

2) We don't design, create or manage gauge resources, so you gotta rely on the community, e.g.:

Just a thought, in Windows Display Settings could you have your existing Sensor Panel screen to the right of your main screen/s and your new 10.1 inch screen located directly below that, then design a Sensor Panel that is the size of both screens combined, so it is effectively spanning both screens (even though they are in physically different places).

      Hi all! 
      I was recently brain storming on how to display sensor info from aida64 SSE. I wasn't a huge fan on having a secondary sensor display connected through HDMI, as windows does weird things when you have 'multiple' displays connected and even windows 11 doesn't fix it. 
      So I came up with a solution to display the sensor info through a raspberry pi, a web browser and a tiny bit of javascript. 
      If this could be of any use to anyone else, please feel free to either create a PR or fork it and play around with it on your own.

      I installed the Beada Panel, great!  
      But:
      Entering Standby Mode, it does not switch off, instead showing ScreenSavers.
      Is there a way to change that?

      As I had a few things that would have made it easier to set up mine I decided to make a topic about this for anyone else to share their ideas.
      I hope this could influence development.
       
      Here we go!
      1) As I added more and more sensors, the sensorpanel manager started getting cluttered. Maybe an option to add folders would be nice.
      2) As seen below have a single graph with all CPU core clocks and usage%.
      To achieve this I had to make a line graph for every core's clock and usage% without background to make them all visible at the same time. A multi line graph feature would make this much easier (yes, this is part of why the sensor panel manager got cluttered lol)  

      3) As you can also see in this picture, there is no anti-aliasing in the line graph, that would make it look much cleaner!
      4) I know there's an option for custom made gauges, but it would be nice if there were more options by default, perhaps ones shared in the community here?
      5) Some features for basic shapes would be nice, rectangles and circles, filled or outlined. I know it's not graphic design software, but adding simple design elements would be so much easier this way

      Hello,
      I hope this hasn't already been covered, not found this exact question though already asked.
      4D Systems makes a bunch of LCD products which mainly have UART interfaces. They are not primary display interfaces, so don't take an HDMI input etc from your PC, they can be programmed to handle serial data and display it in various ways. You design the GUI yourself in their IDE and then you feed it the data you want in the known format, and make it do what you like with that data.
      What I am trying to find out is if there is a way to use AIDA64 to collect the data from the PC, such as CPU temperature etc, and send the data out the UART to the display. I don't want all the graphics from AIDA64, all I want is the data for the sensors.
      I have used AIDA64 for a while, going to a external HDMI monitor and displaying data on that, and it works, but now and then I get issues where windows decides the little monitor is the primary, or the mouse goes in there and gets stuck, and all sorts of other weird things. I also dont want it loading my GPU at all, I just want it off that whole system entirely.
      Is there a way to have AIDA64 export in a stream the selected Sensor data, to the serial UART? These 4D displays can handle BAUD's into the MBaud rates, so not 9600 or 115200 type levels.
      If there is, can you please point me in the right direction.
      If there is a way to get this data, I can create a demo project use a 4D Systems display, and post that up here for other people to use as a base. I have used 4D displays for years in various applications at work and around the house, we build full systems at work using their products, and it just seems the perfect application for PC Chassis builds, rather than using HDMI type solutions off the GPU. Let the display do the GUI 'heavy lifting' itself with its GPU and just feed it the data it is looking for from AIDA64.
      Any tips would be appreciated

      I tried importing many sensor panels. I have a 1920x480 screen. They all come out looking horrible and don't fit. In the forum it says they are 1920X480. Can someone fill my in on what I am missing?
