CPU Widget

The CPU widget displays a visual representation of CPU usage over a time range.

A picture of an expanded CPU widget showing average CPU usage.


The CPU widget is composed of two parts: the graph and the legend:

  • The graph displays the usage data for the currently selected entry as a percentage
  • The legend displays all available entries that can be displayed on the graph along with their last recorded use percentage (except for the "All" option)

Users can scroll through the legend using either the keyboard or mouse to select which entry to display on the graph. The "All" option shows every entry at the same time, though this may get a bit hard to follow if you have a large number of cores/threads.

One can also adjust the displayed time range through either the keyboard or mouse, with a range of 30s to 600s.
