A simple Python app for system CPU and RAM usage monitoring in real time. The app is build mainly using the PyQt5, pyqtgraph and psutil.


Introduction

In this post, I built a simple python application for system CPU and RAM usage monitoring in real time. The app is built mainly using the PyQt5, pyqtgraph and psutil. Similar application comes by default in Windows (Task Manager) and Mac (Activity Monitor). System Monitor is cross-platform compatible so you can run it on all platforms. It offers a new visualization tool for Linux, Windows and Mac.


The starting window design has been borrowed from the github repo Python_PySide2_Circular_ProgressBar_Modern_GUI. For more details on how to design the window, please watch Modern GUI - Python, Qt Designer and PySide2.

Install libraries

python -m venv systemApp
source systemApp/bin/activate
pip install PyQt5 pyqtgraph psutil
