SysMetrix 1.0 released

Friday, September 27, 2002 by Xymantix | Discussion: WinCustomize News

SysMetrix 1.0 released! SysMetrix is a skinnable clock and metering application unlike any other. It provides system metrics in a variety of interesting, useful, and cool ways. It can monitor and report on over 40 different types of statistics such as time and date, CPU usage, memory usage, network traffic, unread email, and much more! It can represent the information in many different ways, such as plain text, bar graphs, histograms, sliders, and even analog-style gauges.

I've only been using it for two days, but it is a nice little application. The email notifier and recycle bin alone justify it.
Besides, there are some pretty nice skins!
Thanks for a good app.

Nice looking but..., After running for a few hours makes my XP system so slow it's just about frozen. Must reboot.

That is definetely not Sysmetrix causing that. I have it running on 6 (2k & XP) machines without any problems.

The only thing that I'm aware of that can be slow is monitoring an offline network drive. IOW, you mapped a drive to a remote machine, and choose to monitor it. Later, it goes offline. If you monitor it in SysMetrix, or try to view in it explorer, or actually attempt to deal with it in ANY manner, it will "hang" for a long time and eventually time out. That's the way Windows works.

I just barely downloaded and installed it. Very impressive application! Lots of options, and easy to modify existing themes. Nicely done.

Ok, so I'm dumb...

. I've got the program loaded, and now what. How to change that skins? Any info would be great.

Sorry, to say that I'm not a skinner, but only a lowly Hollywood Writer, and after staring at the screen for 16 hours a day, I like changes.

Have any advice how to associate the downloads.

Thanks in advance for any suggestion.

To skin, right-click on the window and choose Configure or whatever it says. Then you just double-click on a theme from the theme browser.

Thanks Tarkus, yet, I'm still dumb. Perhaps, I should have explained a bit...O'kay, so I download from Wincustomizea skin from SysMetrix to the Desktop...and now what.

Or better yet, lets say I've already a skin for SysMetrix, it now sits on the desktop...now what...or,am I so lame to know that it has automatically been associated with SysMetrix?

Just a writer.

Thanks again for your input.

Hey Bear, it's all a matter of placement! SysMetrix has a directory named "Themes" underneath it. So if you installed in the default location it will be "c:\Program Files\SysMetrix\Themes". Just unzip the zipped up theme file into a directory with the same name as the theme, underneath the "Themes" directory. As an example, you download the MIIG.zip theme. Unzip it so that the files end up in "c:\Program Files\SysMetrix\Themes\MIIG". After that, just goto the configuration like Tarkus mentioned and it will be there!

For some reason, the program crashes at startup if I place a shortcut to it in my startup folder (there are multiple users on this computer so I did not want to enable the 'run on startup' option. The workaround that I found is to edit the registry so that it starts under HKEY Current User\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run. I am posting this in case anybody experiences a similar problem.

Actually, the prog still crashes intermittently at startup.

The only complaint I have is that you can't monitor network traffic on a particular adapter, but only on a specified IP. As someone who uses a dial-up ISP which provides a different IP each time I connect, the network traffic scales are rendered useless unless I go into configuration and re-select the IP each time I connect.

If this were changed, SysMetrix would be perfect!
