(The original thread on this matter seems to have been locked, so I'm making a new one here.)
I would love to see someone make a command-line exe that will let you output GPU-Z data values into a shell window
I want to implement data from GPU-Z into MRTG
If you dont know MRTG... it will read data from SNMP, WMI or other sources, and create graphs.
MRTG requires 4 lines of data when sending values to it's script. (Info here
, scroll down to 'External Monitoring Scripts')
number value 1
number value 2
system uptime (in human readable form)
The two first lines is what's interesting. The two last lines are easy to create using windows shell commands. But for the sake of userfriendlyness, you could also let the exe generate the two last lines.
For example, you use various command line argument to select what graphics card you want to pull data from, and then you select what data will be used for value 1 and value 2
readgpu-z.exe /gpu:1 /sensor1:temp /sensor2:rpmpercent
would give you this result
1 day 4 hours 33 minutes 25 seconds
It's very important there is only outputted raw numeric values on the two first lines, with . used for decimal point (not comma)
To create an exe that could be used for many other applications (and not only MRTG) perhaps just make it output a single value, and not pre-formatted for MRTG?
There already exists a similar command line exe
for SpeedFan, and it would be so neat to have one for GPU-Z as well.
See my example graphs here...
EDIT: GPU-Z would need an option for starting minimized (sys tray) so you can put GPU-Z in the startup folder.
