XRG is an open source system monitor for Mac OS X. XRG allows you to monitor CPU activity, GPU activity, memory usage, battery status, machine temperature, network activity, disk I/O, current weather, and stock market data. The goal of XRG is to be a functional system monitor that has a clean and flexible interface, so it doesn't intrude on the. If your Mac notebook gets warm even when it isn’t doing tasks that require intensive calculations, or if it has fans that run for a long time, use Activity Monitor to check CPU activity. Look for malfunctioning processes that can put a significant load on the CPU, and check whether Spotlight is indexing your hard drive.

Display, track, record, alert, on readings from the temperature sensors that come built-in to Apple computers running Mac OS X. Impetus for the creation of this piece looks like it was the fiasco of Apple's insulting and sophomoric air cooling system for the Mirror Door models PowerMac G4. The Mirror Door was one of the first models to have a temperature sensor standard, but also no supplied utility to access it. Updates to 'Temperature Monitor' steadily added more supported models, access to additional sensors, and new features. The original version was a single app. After a while, it was divided into two apps 'Temperature Monitor' and 'Temperature Monitor Lite' in which the Lite versions are officially contained here alongside their full featured counterparts. Lite places readouts in the menubar and does little else, without occupying dock space or system resources.

The Mirror Door 2003 built in cpu sensor is located outside the cpu chip, on the cpu 'card' therefore it is mainly an air temperature sensor in which 120-125.F is dangerously high. Anyone can read the MDD sensor WITHOUT Bresink's software, with the Terminal command:

ioreg -n AppleCPUThermo grep temperature

...and then divide the number returned by /256 for degrees Celsius, or divide by /142 +32 for approximate degrees Fahrenheit.

DIY conversion formulas:
tF = 9/5 tC + 32 ...or... tF = 9/5 (tC + 17.77)
tC = 5/9 (tF - 32) ...or... tC = 5/9 tF - 17.77

System failure occurs on my PowerMac G4 when Temperature Monitor 4.8 (main and Lite) and probably other version numbers are used in conjunction with specific old hard-drives, even though this PowerMac G4 doesn't support SMART drive temperature monitoring. I have a 500GB SATA Hitachi Deskstar manufactured 2008 (maybe there was a 'firmware' update for the drive?). OS X 10.4.11 Server and 10.4.8 Client both tested locking-up with this hard-drive attached. I can set the drive polling preference to 'x' minutes and then cause the crash to happen after 'x' minutes elapse. Temperature Monitor v4.2 and less aren't exhibiting this problem with this Mac+drive.

Core temp

On my 2007 Mac with SSD, Temperature Monitor 4.8 shows an SSD readout but it for some reason is always wrong, never deviates from steady 30.C - this Mac has numerous other sensors functioning.

Introduction

Intel® Power Gadget is a software-based power usage monitoring tool enabled for Intel® Core™ processors (from 2nd Generation up to 10th Generation Intel® Core™ processors). Intel® Atom™ processors are not supported. It is supported on Windows* and macOS* and includes an application, driver, and libraries to monitor and estimate real-time processor package power information in watts using the energy counters in the processor. With this release, we are providing functionality to evaluate power information on various platforms including notebooks, desktops and servers. Windows 7* and 32-bit versions of the Intel® Power Gadget for Windows* has ceased development from 3.0.7. Starting with version 3.5 and going forward, only the 64-bit version and Windows 8* will be supported.

Background

Traditional methods to estimate power/energy usage of the processor has always been a cumbersome task that included special purpose tools or instrumentation on the platform along with third party equipment. The motivation for the tool was to assist end-users, ISV’s, OEM’s, developers, and others interested in a more precise estimation of power from a software level without any H/W instrumentation.

New Features

In version 3.0 there are additional features that include estimation of power on multi-socket systems as well as externally callable APIs to extract power information within sections of code. The multi-socket support essentially evaluates the Energy MSR on a per-socket basis and provides an estimate of power draw per socket. The API layer is a set of libraries and dlls that can be called and offers the flexibility to build the tool within code sections of an application. Latest release also includes support for Windows 10*.

Brief Description (Windows*)

Intel® Power Gadget 3.5 consists of the following components. Set of driver and libraries which access and post process the processor energy counter to calculate the power usage in Watts, temperate in Celsius and frequency in GHz (default install directory will be ~Program FilesIntelPower Gadget 3.5). A command line version of the tool (PowerLog3.0.exe) is also included

Usages (Windows*)

Common use of Intel® Power Gadget is to monitor energy usage of the processor

  • Provides processor power (Watts), temperature (Celsius) and frequency (MHz) in real-time via graph displayed in the GUI
  • Let you log the power and frequency measurements and save it in a csv format.
  • Double click on the desktop shortcut and the GUI will launch
  • Drag to move the GUI.
  • Right click the GUI and a pop-up menu will show up allowing you to choose options or close the application. Options have the following parameters. Click “Start Log” button in the GUI to start logging. Press the same button “Stop Log” to stop logging. While it’s logging, red label “REC” will blink in the power chart area.
  • You can choose to add time-stamp to the log file name or not.
  • You can choose the log file name.
  • You can choose to resize the GUI from 100% to 300% by dragging the slider and testing the new size with the “Apply Size” button and accept the changes by pressing “Ok”.
  • Screen Update Resolution lets you change how often the GUI is updated at runtime. This may range from 50 ms to 1000 ms. (Default set to 1000 ms)
  • Log Sampling Resolution lets you change the logging sampling resolution ranging from 1 ms to 1000 ms. (Default set to 100 ms)
  • In a multi-socket system, you can choose which package information to display in the GUI. The log will record all package information in a csv file.
  • Click 'Start Log' button in the GUI to start logging. Press the same button 'Stop Log' to stop logging. While it's logging, red label 'REC' will blink in the power chart area

Using Intel® Power Gadget 3.0 in a Script

In order to start and stop the logging in a script, first launch the GUI as usual.

  • At the beginning of the script, call 'IntelPowerGadget.exe -start' and it will trigger the logging in the GUI.
  • At the end of the script, call “IntelPowerGadget.exe -stop” and it will stop the logging.

The parameters for the log are based on the options set in the GUI.

PowerLog3.0

PowerLog3.0.exe is the command line version of Intel® Power Gadget in logging power usage

Usage:

  • Log power data to logfile for a period of time:
  • Start a command a log power data to logfile until the command finish:

Logfile Data

Logfile will include the elapsed timed, package power limit, processor frequency, GT frequency, processor temperature, average and cumulative power of the processor

  • Processor Energy (Total energy of the processor) = IA Energy + GT Energy (if applicable) + Others (not measured)
  • IA Energy (Energy of the CPU/processor cores)
  • GT Energy (Energy of the processor graphics) – If applicable , some processors for desktops and servers don’t have it or may have use discrete graphics

Only works on 2nd Generation Intel® Core™ processor family or newer. Atom processors not yet supported.

Use only 32-bit installer for 32-bit OS and 64-bit installer for 64-bit OS
