Good hardware performance is what drives the machines to give us better performance. Therefore, there are many users who would like to have hardware usage monitored at all times, but unfortunately most of the apps serve this purpose they stay behind, so if we have something on the full screen or if we put a window in front, we'll stop seeing it.
So, today we're going to talk about it Debug Diagnostics, an open source system that takes part of the core to constantly show you the hardware status. It's got but, and that's it we will lose part of the solution
By the way, the cave of this app is when we use something full screen, as a game, where it cannot be shown. We can, however, prepare the game in window mode without restrictions (most allow) and in that case we will see a sidebar.
Sidebar Diagnostics to detect hardware usage
The program we are going to talk about is Sidebar Diagnostics, which you can download for free from its homepage on Github. The Setup.exe file will be downloaded to install (Next -> Next -> Finish), and then the sidebar will automatically exit through our Hardware without touching anything.
Of course, this has a default choice, but we can go into editing it to change it the way we like. Put and remove Hardware in the bar, edit the font, make the program start when you turn on the computer and then long etcetera are the options we will find.
It also provides a series of graphs to see how hardware performance varies over time, although in this case it is much more limited than what other monitoring systems offer.
Of course, we can make the sidebar open only if we want to, so that it doesn't bother us when we don't want to see hardware use from there, remember, this app "consumes" the part of the track that we can use for other things and after all, we may not always want to "steal" "space for us. In any case, remember also that if we put a game or video on full screen, we will get that part of the screen and we will be focusing on the full screen content.
