Description Mircea Kitsune 2015-09-22 22:10:43 UTC
System monitor widgets for PlasmaShell were introduced in 5.3, for viewing CPU load + RAM usage + more. But unlike their KDE4 variants, they are missing an important setting: You cannot adjust their update interval, which is apparently hard coded to 2 seconds. I prefer update rates of 1 second or less, and would like to see this option re-introduced. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Add a monitor widget to the desktop, then right click it and go to its settings menu. Actual Results: There is no longer an option to specify the update rate of the widget, as there was for the KDE4 system monitors.

Still a problem in 5.9.0. There is no update interval option for any of the system monitor plasmoids, which I would appreciate the ability of modifying from the hardcoded default of 2 seconds.

Workaround The interwall setting can be changed from the applet qml script. Network Monitor widget - /usr/share/plasma/plasmoids/org.kde.plasma.systemmonitor.net/contents/ui/Applet.qml has line: 'interval: 2000' The interwall is in milliseconds.

(In reply to Rog131 from comment #2) Thank you for this information! I'd rather not change any system files unless it's a really major issue, but this is useful to know until the problem is solved.
