NomFerp Plugin

Post by ailia »

Image

Just finished development on a new perfmon plugin that aims to handle a lot of use cases:
Get process names and stats sorted by alphabetically, CPU usage, memory, or io usage
Get drive names and stats sorted alphabetically, by free space, or io usage
Get network interface names and stats sorted alphabetically, or by network stats
Or pretty much any other perfmon category sorted by whatever.

The main things that make this different from the built-in perfmon plugin are sorting, being able to query instances by index rather than name, and not incurring a performance hit for reading more than one value per update (The example skin is over 2000 values loaded every update).

Just waiting on developer feedback for a plugin name so as not to conflict with the existing perfmon.dll

Well thats a settled matter I guess.

The plugin is feature complete, but may still have a few bugs due to the scope of what it can do being way beyond what I have time to test.

Source code coming as soon as I've determined it won't cause vision damage, insanity, or madness its its mere presence. Give it a week or so.

CONFIRMED WORKING ON: Windows 10 Preview, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 7, Vista, XP, Server 2003

All options are case sensitive!

Parent Measure Options:
Category=Name of the perfmon category to load
Order=Name of the perfmon counter to sort the category
Filter=Names of instances to exclude from final output seperated by |
Mode=See mode section below

Child Measure Options:
ParentName=Name of the parent meter
Counter=Name of the perfmon counter to retrieve, name if you want the isntance name itself
Instance=Instance # to retrieve, starting at 1
Mode=See mode section below

Modes
Normal Gives the raw counter value, useful for things like memory totals
Difference Gives the difference between the current value and previous, useful for things like measuring data per second
DifferenceTotal Gives the difference divided by the total, requires there be a _Total instance
DifferenceTotalPercent Gives the difference divided by the total as a percentage, requires there be a _Total instance

I can't get this to load on Win 7 (32bit)...

Can't seem to register the dll appropriately. Receive an error indicating the "entry-point DllRegisterServer was not found" and to "make sure NomPerf.dll is a valid DLL or OCX file."

Any ideas?
Cheers!

Wait a tic, why are you trying to register the DLL with windows? Just load the rmskin and rainmeter installs it how it needs it to work.

When I downloaded the rmskin and loaded it up into Rainmeter, Rainmeter simply froze. I even attempted to totally shutdown all other open skins, leaving just yours open. No luck.

Note I have built my own skins for years, so have some idea of the basics of loading skins. Not sure what the conflict is so attempted to register the DLL thinking that might be the issue.

That said, I have not attempted to build my own simple skin based on this plugin. I will have to try that later when I have time.
Cheers!
